Environmental Management and Business Institute
Professors John Katers, Kevin Fermanich and John Stoll and Associate Director of EMBI John Arendt
Commonly referred to as EMBI, the Environmental Management and Business Institute connects campus and community by encouraging thoughtful analysis of environmental problems, and solutions that are practical and cost-effective. The program advises businesses and agencies (including Aurora hospital, pictured) on how best to improve their sustainable practices, while creating opportunities for students to gain insight into business issues and explore best practices in environmental policy. EMBI hosts a major annual conference, "Green Innovations," held each April during Earth Week bringing issues of policy, sustainability, natural resources and more, to the region. Faculty and staff members from across campus contribute to the Institute's success.
