Four Northwestern staff members were injured when a tree fell on the Evanston campus near the Jacobs Center at 2001 Sheridan Road.
Three of those injured were taken to Evanston Hospital. The other was treated for less serious injuries at the scene. All four individuals are staff members who work in the Global Poverty Research Lab at the Kellogg School of Management.
As work continued at the scene Thursday evening, parts of the area remained closed to pedestrians.
