Donna Lybecker and ISU Sustainability Today

Emma and Jessa sit down with Dr. Donna Lybecker to explore the broader scope of current sustainability at ISU.

Dr. Donna Lybecker sat down with Jessa and Emma to give advice to the Bengal community on how to contribute to sustainability on campus. She also gave us some special insight to President Satterlee’s Fall Announcement declaration of a net-zero campus, and where in the process we are currently. Most importantly, Dr. Lybecker reminded us all that sustainability can be achieved by everyone, no matter who you are, and also by small steps. Sustainability doesn’t have to mean big sacrifices! Every step counts.

Jessa is in her final year of her undergraduate career, pursuing three majors: English with Creative Writing, History, and Global Studies with an emphasis in French Language and Literature. She is a published author through ISU's Black Rock & Sage literary magazine and hopes to join the Sustainability Club at ISU. Her sustainability journey began with her year abroad when she interned for Letters to the Earth, an organization dedicated to environmental sustainability. She hopes to work for Amnesty International until she can write books in the mountains full time.
