ITHACA, NY—The Sustainability Speaker Series at Ithaca College will feature a talk by Mark Orlowski, founder and executive director of the Sustainable Endowments Institute, on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in room 112 of the Center for Natural Sciences. Titled “Rising to the Sustainability Leadership Challenge,” the talk is free and open to the public.
Founded in 2005, the Sustainable Endowments Institute
(SEI) is a nonprofit organization engaged in research and education to advance sustainability in campus operations and endowment practices. Orlowski heads a team that authors the institute’s annual “College Sustainability Report Card,” which evaluates and grades key elements of sustainability at universities in the U.S. and Canada. The report card is designed to help schools learn from each other’s experiences and adopt campus and endowment sustainability policies that work.
