Research UIC/NIH Center for Botanical Dietary Supplements Research Dr. Norman R. Farnsworth, director from 1999 to 2011, had the vision to find people with common intersects and bring them together to work collaboratively. This created a center that is able to continue to be frontrunners in their research. What connections did
they make about their work in
relation to sustainability? Their hopes for moving forward:

- More clinical trials

- Testing more botanicals

-Finding a botanical that is as efficacious as a drug What stood out most

cool. They all involve
collaboration and
education (awareness).
All things you need to
be sustainable! Rhea Jen With all of these
overarching themes,

We've met a lot more amazing assets since last time, haven't we?! What do you think about these? Any new themes? You're right!

They could share and support each other by seeking common ground even though they're focuses may not be the same.

What if... Absolutely!

Community seems to be a recurring theme among these new assets. I guess community is what supports UIC's various initiatives isn't it? Speaking of community --- I bet these different asset would benefit from not only collaborating, but by developing more of a sense of community among themselves... I agree! The Urban Health Program and the Midwest Latino Health Research, Training, and Policy Center worked together? The MLHRTPC could use students from the UHP to work on their projects in the community as volunteers. This would give UHP another resource and aid their students building their skill set AND help the MLHRTPC gain more of a strong hold and presence on campus Presence on campus is very important. It really emphasizes being a part of the UIC community. Most of our assets do work in the outside community or are community supported. I think developing community on
campus is just as important. Definitely. The support community provides is key to sustainability. Community, collaboration, education (awareness) must be all you need to be sustainable.

Director of Andrology Laborotories Biggest Strengths Connection between Work & Sustainability supports awareness and environmental organizations teaching/mentoring students research on endocrine disruptor chemicals especially on bpa and primarily focused on looking at the prostate gland supports environmental organizations sharing her research Hopes in Moving Forward continuing to train and empower people as a leader and mentor

ex. president of women in andrology organization and is a professor

challenges: money & funds
issues with immediate impact/shortsightedness (big impediment)
ex. how does fruit fly research lead to humans? What Stood Out the Most? the research on endocrine disruptor chemicals and how most of it is man-made and everywhere we eat EDC prevention such as green chemistry/screening chemicals before production/smarter scientists designing chemicals/ partnering with scientists that desugb products ex. chemists & biologists in order to cease detrimental products development awareness Story demonstrating strength origin of bpa research 2009–was asked to testify in Chicago City Council
on the banning of bpa by an environmental group in Illinois Curtis Winkle, Ph.D. UPP Department Head &

Nathan Scott
Associate Director of Facilities Biggest Strengths Connection to Sustainability What Stood Out the Most Hopes For Moving Forward He adopted two girls from Russia (girls who did not have much to begin with). They grew up in an area that was not very consumer-oriented, vs. the U.S., which is a place that is very focused on consumption (post adoption).

His biggest challenge was teaching them modesty or using only what is essential. His research on environmental cancer--which could impact the community

Research on how the environment affects climate change

He is vegeterian and recommends that we should all go vegetarian--less production cost on meat/less transportation/less cost on feeding cows one of his challenges is minimal funding for certain types of research

continuing his research on climate change concept of the ecological footprint
vertical farming
can save energy if everyone lived in skyscrapers
Rachel Carson's Silent Spring was credited as starting the environmental movement promote healthy well-being and encourages people to stay in shape

provides various opportunities for everyone to get fit and has numerous facilities
ex. offers classes, lessons, weights, tracks, volleyball nets, basketball hoops, pool, etc.

the facility itself--other universities in the midwest don't have one like it

offers plenty of opportunities for student employment

The opportunity they are able to provide for women students and faculty by focusing not only on education, but the development of students and faculty in their professions and careers From year to year the number of applicants has increased. They are able to provide monetary awards to students and faculty for professional development. Students have used these awards to network or take a test/course that would help them move towards their future profession. Faculty have used these awards to do research and attend conferences that would help them continue in their field of study Biggest/ Proudest Strengths:

- Their role in the peace process by using and displaying positive images

- Ability to provide training to students, outreach to 10-12 classes on campus, and workshops in different venues The Wellness Center came into being because STUDENTS petitioned for it The Wellness Center has identified 8 dimensions of wellness 8 dimensions of wellness:

intellectual Wellness Advocates Volunteering to Educate Students (WAVES) is a student organization that works with the Wellness Center WAVES

- Helps the Wellness Center put on presentations and events
- Learns public speaking skills and information about wellness By providing early awareness of wellness, students will learn to make healthy choices early on to prevent health and wellness related issues later in life The Wellness Center held an event, "Enough is Enough," a campaign to stop societal violence. During the event, many presentations were shown to inform the audience of the impact, repercussions, and solutions of bullying. The Wellness Center presented a play written by Associate Director Carol Petersen to display the various types and situations of bullying and how to combat them. There was also a panel of victims of bullying. The panelists shared their experiences with bullying and how they overcame them. One individual shared how she was bullied because of her cleft lip. Instead of letting the bullying tear her down, she used her emotions to start an organization that helped others with cleft lip. These type of events provide support for students on a personal and kindred level.

So what do you
think about of all
the assets we've documented in this Prezi?? They were amazing!
They reiterate all of the themes we have identified that an asset needs to be sustainable. The UIC Chancellor’s Committee of the Status of Women Professional Development Awards
are meant to serve as funding support for professional development activities of women in the UIC community. Professional development activities supported by the awards must promote CCSW’s mission of professional and career development.
