Environmental Resources Center

Looks to Future of Fort Wayne's Riverfront

Bruce Kingsbury

With many in the region looking forward to riverfront development, one IPFW Center of Excellence is helping lead the charge to understand ecology and conservation of the area rivers. The Environmental Resources Center (ERC) is a collaborative effort among faculty, students, and community partners to understand and protect the region's natural resources. Led by Director Bruce Kingsbury, professor of biology and associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the ERC is engaged in ecological research of a variety of animals, including conservation approaches to benefit local wildlife while improving the area landscape.


Plans for future riverfront development have given Kingsbury an opportunity for conservation and education about water and local habitats. "The Environmental Resources Center is proud to be a resource for the area community," said Kingsbury. "We will promote the understanding and conservation of our region's resources and work to make a better, more sustainable ecosystem for the future community to enjoy." Read the news release

food2.jpg Questions about Catering? Ask Aramark
Two Q/A sessions will be held with Aramark to discuss catering----our needs, how the process works, and what they offer. If you handle catering for your department, you may want to attend one of these sessions (both in Kettler Hall, Room 146).
  • Monday, August 10, 10 a.m.--noon
  • Tuesday, August 11, 3--5 p.m.
Sessions will end early if there are no further questions. Information about catering will be shared via Inside IPFW when it becomes available.
New Grievance Policy Format to Help Resolve Concerns
The administrative/professional and clerical/service grievance policy was adjusted to follow an alternative dispute resolution format on July 1. This change will help employees move forward in a positive manner while resolving workplace issues or concerns.
Human Resources will hold open sessions to share the policy changes on these days (all in Kettler Hall, Room G46)
  • Thursday, August 13, 9--10:15 a.m. or 2-- 3:15 p.m.
  • Friday, August 14, 9--10:15 a.m. or 2-- 3:15 p.m.

Photo of the Week
IPFW was the title sponsor of the Baals Music Festival last Saturday at Headwaters Park. Volunteers, including Chancellor Carwein, manned the Mastodon Ice Lounge, where festival goers recorded themselves at a Dubsmash recording booth while lip syncing to popular songs, then shared them on social media.
