CAMPUS ENGAGEMENT: REPORTING ON THE CAMPUS CLIMATE CONVERSATIONS


Climate Conversation 2013

In April 2013, a partnership of UM sustainability allies coordinated the campus’ second Campus Climate Conversation focused on the intersection of sustainability in academics and campus operations. Fifty-seven students, twenty staff and administrators, and fourteen faculty from across campus participated in this gathering intended to inspire new ideas and paths forward as UM deepens its commitment to sustainability in both campus operations and in its classrooms.

We asked participants, “How can we (the UM community) strengthen connections between education, operations, and decision-making to advance sustainability and UM’s Climate Action Plan at the University?” Click HERE to check out the report and see what participants had to say! The Resource Guides from October 2012 and April 2013 are also available.

 

MEET OUR 2013/2014 ECO REPS!


Applying sustainability concepts and practices in UM's residence halls has been the focus of student efforts for several years. This year, with the help of KRELF funding, the Eco Reps living in Miller and Duniway Halls (but supporting sustainability work in other residence halls as well) are receiving a stipend for their awesome work!

Meet our new Eco Reps and learn more about sustainability in UM's residence halls!
