BRISTOL, R.I. – Roger Williams University is one of 10 universities internationally to join the Planet Forward University Consortium, a newly launched multimedia, digital storytelling collaborative aimed at providing an added voice for those working on sustainability challenges such as food security, water, energy and climate change.
Based at the Center for Innovative Media at George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, Planet Forward engages young people, opinion leaders, and innovators in finding solutions for the biggest challenges facing the planet. It provides a forum for experts and engaged citizens to come together to find solutions to shared challenges, specifically in the areas of energy, climate and sustainability.
Help the Inter-Class Council shave their way to conquering childhood cancer! RWU volunteers shave their heads in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, and family and friends give generously - worldwide. The St. Baldrick's Foundation uses the donations to fund more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the United States Government. Last year, RWU raised $19,500.
