Welcome back for the Fall 2016 Semester!

I am pleased to announce that LIU has endorsed the creation of a LIU Post Center for Sustainability.
I will serve as Director and Prof. Carol Boyer will serve as Associate Director.  The work of the Center will focus on developing campus-wide interdisciplinary learning, service, and research experiences for students and faculty.  The Center will also house many of the programs our Committee has developed and supported over the past few years.  Therefore, our most important task this semester is to explore strategies for expanding our outreach across the campus.

We know that 2015 was the hottest year ever recorded in modern history.  And we know that this summer scorched many temperature records.  The need to build a sustainable campus is more urgent than ever.  Please do what you can to join us at our upcoming meetings.  In addition to these planning meetings, we want to develop a schedule for upcoming events.
