We marked the end of the semester with our biannual T-RUST Advisory Board meeting. Dr. Steffi Hartwell, Dean of WSU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, opened the meeting and highlighted T-RUST’s interdisciplinary work & community engagement as emblematic of the current goals of CLAS. Students presented their research projects and received valuable community input. Many advisory board members also signed up to be on student advisory groups to provide regular guidance on student projects. There were over 40 attendees at the meeting, including new collaborators from Detroit Future City and Chandler Park Conservancy, as well as representatives from WSU’s Master of Public Health Program.
Thank you to everyone who came out! We appreciate the feedback provided by the advisory board members and look forward to furthering our community collaborations!
