Kickoff Event, Sunday, March 22, 6:00pm, Dakota Nature Park
A lifelong South Dakota resident and SDSMT civil engineering grad, Norma Nusz Chandler’s interests in the environment and solving complex problems led to a career as a pipeline engineer. She transitioned to faculty member at SDSU in 2001. Norma recently completed her doctorate and, during that process, developed a new appreciation for writing to the great joy of her mother-–a prolific writer in her own right. Norma’s research on sustainable indicators informed the Brookings Benchmarks study.
