In partnership with AASHE, the Greening of the Campus conference took place in Indiana in late September.
"This interdisciplinary conference allows people representing diverse areas in university communities to share information on environmental issues. These areas range from the practical day-to-day management of the physical plant to "green" curriculum development and "green" utilization of campus resources. The areas are bound by common concerns for achieving environmental soundness through safe and sane management of resources. The campus community can become a "green" model for society as a whole by gathering and sharing this information."*
Our very own Stephanie Piech was there representing our campus! She presented on sustainability in dining services from an interns perspective. Topics she covered were going trayless, energy audits and compost initiatives, and how student groups and interns have taken part in making these things happen. She also mentioned some of our resource management groups like REMP for their work on campus and SWIFT for their work with the food shelters. Great Work Steph!
