Sustainability Initiatives in the Union and Activities

Have you participated in a chat via Twitter before? Every Tuesday at 3 p.m. Easter follow #CUAD on Twitter to join the discussion (topics change weekly).

On Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 3 p.m. Eastern, #CUAD will share ideas and get inspiration regarding sustainable issues and initiatives. Student activities and unions can lead the way in making the campus more environmentally friendly. Have you considered your role in leading the discussion on campus to preserve the environment, economy, and society?

  • Does your institution offer incentives for students who carpool?
  • Does your union have water refill stations?
  • Do you order organic or recycled cotton T-shirts for programs?
  • Tell us how you have successfully partnered with food services to bring local and/or organic produce to campus.

Please join us as we share ideas for making our campuses a better place for students.
