University Council on Sustainability

Working Groups

The Council Working Groups foster collaborative development of sustainability projects in the areas of communications, operations, and new initiatives. Selected projects have university-wide impact; involve faculty, students and staff; require a task force mindset to bring to fruition; include participants from outside the Council based on needed expertise or interest; and generally can be completed within a calendar year.
