Description/achievement of initiative

Teach Sustainable Development Concepts: Offering BIOL 110 Environmental Issues and Sustainability; Conducting the Sustainability across the Campus Project (5 courses plus Residence Life, Resnick Learning Center, and O’Connor Center involvement).

Encourage Research on Sustainable Development Resources: The Environmental Studies AS requires an independent study, in which students learn about sustainability in careers, and think about changes necessary to make those careers sustainable; Most BIOL 290 Independent Studies that I mentor involve projects related to environmental factors related to sustainability.

Green Our Campuses: Planting 100 trees for the Centennial, energy conservation efforts.

Support Sustainability Efforts in the Communities in which We Reside: Street tree planting coordination; Service learning projects to promote social concerns.

Engage with and Share Results through International Frameworks: We report our activities to the United Nations Academic Initiative administrators
