Welcome to the LIU Brooklyn urban sustainability subject guide! This guide was created as part of the Campus Committee Urban Sustainability Program (CUSP), a program founded by a four year National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant. Deborah Mutnick, LIU Brooklyn Professor of English, has directed the grant program along with the assistance of faculty and administrators from the library and biology, economics, and history departments.

The team also includes Profs. Katelyn Angell, Margaret Cuonzo, Carole Griffiths, Stacey Horstmann-Gatti, Timothy Leslie, Gustavo Rodriguez, Jay Shuttleworth, Jose Tello, and Christine Zolnik,

  • March: "Urban Health in the Time of Covid-19," Anjali Sauthoff, an environmental health scientist focused on translating science into practice
  • April: “Climate Change and the Future of the Planet,Dr. Cynthia Rosenzweig, agronomist and climatologist
