Valentines Day 'Grab and Go' Event
ISE collaborated with the Health and Wellness Ambassadors to give students a bit of love from their RISD community.
Native Traditional Story Telling
ISE, in collaboration with Assistant Professor Angelo Baca and students Pei-Yu Hung and Andres Guevara, organized a series of storytelling give-and-tack dialogue with indigenous speakers from many nations, including the Narragansett, Navajo, and Wampanoag tribes, on topics of ecology, food, cultural appropriation, stolen objects, and more.
Earth Day Event
In celebration of Earth Day, ISE and the Nature Lab did a grab-and-go event. Visitors stopped by the Nature Lab between 11 am and 1 pm to pick up Earth-friendly items, and learn more about how to connect with nature in Rhode Island.
To support students in finding resources on campus regarding their overall well-being and happiness, we helped organize an outdoor fair in collaboration with SEI-based organizations on campus that allowed students to receive relaxing and health-promoting items while also giving them a space to ask questions.
Community Dinner Series: How do you Engage with your Community?
ISE hosted a community dinner series and discussion following the Alternative Spring Break's conclusion, where a group of twelve students ventured to ECO City Farms to paint a beautiful mural and work on the non-profit's learning farm. ECO City Farms' mission is to eliminate racial and socioeconomic inequalities in health by growing vegetables, herbs and fruit in food deserts and selling them to community members at an affordable rate.
