Green Economic Development on the Smaller-Metro Scale
Historian and journalist Catherine Tumber traveled to 25 cities in the Northeast and Midwest to research her book Small, Gritty, and Green: The Promise of America’s Smaller Industrial Cities in a Low-Carbon World (MIT Press, 2012). In this lecture, she will discuss strategies for developing a productive green economy in the era of climate change, and invite conversation about Worcester’s efforts to meet the challenge.

NOAA Internships: Sponsored by Mosakowski and Marsh Institutes
The Mosakowski and Marsh Institutes are launching a new summer internship program for undergraduates at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The NOAA Internships will place Clark students in exciting, hands-on projects at locations around the United States.
Students from a wide range of majors will have the chance to learn from working scientists and policy experts at one of America's leading public scientific institutions. The interns will also be mentored by Clark faculty to maximize the connections between their internship experiences and their academic programs.
5 students have been selected for the program, which awards summer research stipends of $4000 per student. For more information about Clark's NOAA Internship Program, contact Prof. Robert Johnston, Director of the George Perkins Marsh Institute, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508 751-4619 or Jim Gomes, Director of the Mosakowski Institute for Public Enterprise, at email@example.com or 508 421-3872.
