During the May 22 commencement, all people are required to wear masks when indoors and on shuttle buses. Outdoor spaces (including tents) will not require masks, although we do encourage mask wearing. While we will make hand sanitizer available throughout the venue, we request no hand-shaking during ceremonies.
On Earth Day, sustainable nutrition expert Lorraine Mongiello, DrPH., associate professor of Interdisciplinary Health Science and Clinical Nutrition, will present the “Planetary Health Diet.”
Developed over the course of three years by a group of 37 scientists from 16 different countries, this diet is a brand new approach to increasing sustainability while improving health, and it’s being backed up by some serious evidence.
After the presentation all attendees are invited to the NYIT garden to plant seeds and enjoy snacks.
