Since 2013 , the Center for Environmental Stewardship ( CES ) has been a part of the Fine School of the Sciences . The center ’ s mission is to “ cultivate an environmentally literate citizenry and support educational opportunities and programs in environmental science and sustainability .” By promoting civic engagement and volunteerism , the CES works to keep the environment and neighboring communities healthy .
Kimberly Pause Tucker , Ph . D ., Director , Center for Environmental Stewardship and Associate Professor of Biological Sciences , says that she and her students have worked hard during the past few years to get the CES where it is today . “ We are excited that there are so many great faculty , staff , and students who are interested in sustainability , and we hope that through our efforts and the efforts of others that sustainability and community service become an even bigger part of the SU culture .”


In October , Stevenson launched new interactive campus maps to make it even easier to navigate its two campuses . When prospective students and their parents — as well as alumni coming back to see what else is new — visit campus , the University wants their experience to be a great one .
Visitors can now refine the search for their destination by campus , including a more specific breakdown by academic building , residence hall , athletic areas , dining facilities , parking , and shuttle bus stops . Other miscellaneous categories include campus stores , areas reserved for meditation , and quads .
Each location is marked by an icon and accompanying description . For added convenience , there is also a comprehensive search feature where any name or keyword of a campus structure can be entered with results immediately yielded in real-time .

ADVANCING THE MISSION VISIT HopeLodge to learn more about Alumni Make a Difference. Alumni Make a Difference at the Hope Lodge The inaugural Alumni Board Service Project took place on March 29 at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in Baltimore. Members of the Alumni Board prepared dinner for a group of individuals receiving local cancer treatments, along with their caregivers. Coordinated by the Alumni Board’s Engagement Committee, the event was a great success. According to Committee Chair Blaire Miller ’05, the experience “really brought us closer together but it also shows our commitment to the community.” The committee intends to host an annual service project and to support the efforts of service initiatives developed by Stevenson students. Alumni volunteers received a generous donation of food from Terra’s Kitchen to prepare that evening. Thanks to the generosity of two members of the company’s marketing team, Jaime Elwood ’01 and Mike Tyler ’02, ingredients were supplied for a chicken dish that was served to 40 guests. Following the meal preparation, volunteers were able to sit down and enjoy dinner with the guests residing at Hope Lodge. This event truly demonstrates the meaningful impact that can result when our alumni continue to engage with their alma mater.
