Chicago State University has been named Tree Campus USA college or university for
2010 by the Arbor Day Foundation. Dr. Karel Jacobs stated, ""It is wonderful to be
recognized nationally as a university that values its trees and outdoor campus. The
CSU campus is part of a larger urban forest that contributes important psychological
and ecological benefits to the inner city. Thanks are due to the dedicated staff who
care for the trees, and students, staff and faculty who participate in Tree Advisory
Committee and Arbor Day events. I invite all in the CSU community to become involved
this year during Earth Week and Arbor Day at the end of April. Watch for the flyers!"
