Campus Sustainability Day
For more information about this Campus Sustainability Day event, please contact the institution's event contact person as listed below.
Come join the Institute for Sustainable Development, the Associated Students Sustainability Program, and Facilities Management and Services in celebrating the 10th Annual Campus Sustainability Day on Wednesday, October 24th, 2012. Campus Sustainability Day is devoted to the challenges and achievements of the students, faculty, and staff who integrate sustainability principles and practices into their institutions and surrounding communities. Together, we’re moving society forward to a sustainable future. As individual campuses we are strong, but as a movement, we are stronger still.
Campus Sustainability Day at Chico State will be a time to reflect. You’ll learn about on-campus sustainability programs and initiatives, some you may already know about and many you didn’t. This is also a time to connect to like-minded people and all kinds of great opportunities for involvement on campus.
A campus sustainability open house will be held in the Bell Memorial Union Auditorium from 9am to 2pm and will include displays highlighting sustainability programs and practices from across the campus. Chico State was recently named to the Princeton Green Guide’s Honor Roll. You’ll learn about all the great work that’s contributed to this recognition in Facilities, Academics, Housing, Dining, the Associated Students, Campus Governance, and much more!
