On April 5, 2016, Drs. Nancy Tuchman and Michael Schuck, Co-Directors of the International Jesuit Ecology Project, met faculty at both John Carroll University in University Heights and Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland to discuss the online textbook Healing Earth and the ways it may be used in courses next fall. Spirits were high as professors and teachers at both institutions were happy to join the Healing Earth team.
