Who We Are
The Calumet Cluster of GLISTEN is a collaborative effort by local colleges, universities and environmental community partners to engage students in direct-action efforts to preserve and restore the environmental health of the Lake Michigan watershed.
What We Do
The GLISTEN model focuses on the following primary goals:
- Provide individual undergraduate students (stewardship liaisons) with opportunities for science-based research projects developed with community partners to enhance their knowledge and skill preparation for conservation careers.
- Increase awareness of environmental efforts within the Northwest Indiana region.
- Enhance the capacity of community partners to preserve, steward, and restore natural systems within the Lake Michigan watershed.
