School of Information Sciences Assistant Professor Nic DePaula served as chair of the Green Street planning committee of the President’s Standing Committee on Environmental Initiatives.

Dr. DePaula, a social scientist studying how information and communication technologies are used to address and mitigate environmental and public health risks, recently established the Lab for Health and Environmental Information (LHEI) at Wayne State.

The lab was created to address the need for knowledge and information about the impacts we have on our environment and the risk of these environmental changes to our individual and public health. Like Green Street, LHEI brings people together from various departments and backgrounds to discuss these critical matters.

The focus of this year's Green Street celebration is environmental justice and sustainability. The month of programming includes in-person activities and online presentations and conversations.

The events are free and open to the public. For more information and a complete list of upcoming events, visit
