Subject: Sustainable Post - Expanded Calendar Update

Calendar follows below….

The Campus Sustainable Post Committee will begin its Fall meetings on Wednesday October 4, 2017.  12:30 pm to 1:50 pm, Pell Hall 231.

We would like to develop a new process for the year which will allow more students, faculty, administrators, and staff to take a leadership role in campus sustainability efforts.  The main change we are making this year is to formalize the development of subcommittees that can take responsibility for a wide range of campus improvements. Right now, we envision the following committees for the fall semester:

     *   Undergraduate Degree Program (Leaders: Pires & Boyer)
     *   April Dinner/Fundraiser (Leaders: Boyer & Brown)
     *   Grants (Leaders: Boyer & Carlin)
     *   Student Engagement (Leaders: Brown and Ferrara)
     *   Climate Action (Leaders: Carlin & Lutz)
     *   Student “Farm” (Leaders: DiVenere & Ferrara)
We can easily accommodate six or more people on each committee. If there is another committee not listed above, let me know.

  *   Prof. DiVenere has been working with students this summer to help construct our first student “farm.”  A very exciting new initiative.

  *   The Center for Sustainability will begin its second year with a focus on expanding student opportunities for interdisciplinary research through new classes and a new undergraduate major.  We welcome everyone’s involvement across the campus.  So please share this notice with others.
