On April 26, 2017, I was honored to co-host the annual Sustainability Dinner and Awards Ceremony. Our keynote speaker this year was former Congressman Steve Israel. Congressman Israel recently started the LIU Global Institute. He spoke about the need to push for policy on campus, in the community, and in the US to protect the environment. He noted that climate change is a recognized as a threat to national security. Chef Justin, and his Aramark team, prepared a delicious vegan dinner – thereby lessening the environmental impact of the email.
