“After a wonderful, 9+ year run, Greening of the Great Lakes will transition to a new show, and the host of the show is going to be my outstanding producer and great friend, Russ White,” says Kirk Heinze on the final edition of Greening of the Great Lakes as a stand-alone program.  “It has been a true pleasure working with Russ, a real radio pro.”

“There’s a need for us to acknowledge and talk more about our differences,” Paulette Granberry Russell, senior advisor to the president for diversity and director of MSU’s Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, tells Jennifer Orlando on MSU Today.

“How do we, across differences, engage with each other effectively? We’re seeking ways to bridge our differences and ways we can build on the strength of our differences as opposed to seeing them as things that divide us.

Michigan State University has set its budget and tuition rates for the new fiscal year.

“It’s always a difficult time when you do budgets because there’s a balancing act that needs to occur,” says Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon. “Tuition is always a difficult challenge.”

“Supply chain, particularly from a Michigan State perspective, means the end to end movement of product from the raw material from a mine or the ocean, through all the production processes, and to the consumer,” Professor David Closs tells Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon and Spartans Athletic Director Mark Hollis on MSU Today. “So we view it all as a very end to end process and try to manage that to meet the needs of the consumer and at the same time keeping cost and waste down.”

We now live in a world where it's cooler to ride your bike than get your drivers license and you risk a dirty look if you're seen carrying  a plastic shopping bag loaded with processed food. WKAR's Brooke Allen asks Kirk Heinze, Host of the Greening of the Great Lakes on MSU Today, how society has evolved environmentally  throughout the years.


Kirk Heinze talks with MSU J-School alumnus and Detroit Free Press automotive columnist Mark Phelan about the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.  And Russ White talks with MSU College of Engineering Dean Satish and MSU Institute for the Study of Youth Sports Director Dan Gould.
