Sustainability Roundtables

Contributed by Marian Brown on 04/28/2004 

Roundtable discussions of sustainability will be held on campus on Monday, May 3, and Wednesday, May 5, from noon to 2:00 p.m. each day.

All interested members of the campus community are invited to attend. Lunch will be provided for the registered participants.

The discussion format is modeled on the institutional plan roundtable format, with the discussion at each table moderated and participants' comments and ideas captured for report. Participants will have structured opportunities to move between the six topic tables to discuss the other areas of interest during each session.

As you can see, the discussion topics for each sustainability round table are linked closely to the current institutional plan priorities. Copies of the relevant sections of the institutional plan will be available at the respective topic table for participants' reference, but it is also suggested that in order to facilitate discussion, interested participants review the institutional plan in advance.
