  1. Earth week 2011 website

    Associated Project(s): 

    Earth Week

    Each year, our campus celebrates Earth Day with a week full of activities.  The Office of Sustainability collaborated with student groups in planning and organizing events for Earth Week 2011. The Earth Week celebration was intended to widen sustainable practice awareness to the campus community.  The events of the week showcased many organizations that promote sustainability, engaged students to be more involved in sustainable efforts, allowed students to use sustainability in their own lives and also included entertainment to celebrate Earth Day. Michael Ableman (Sustainable Canadian Farmer) visited campus to share his life experiences with the students and community.  The week included workshops, a clothing swap and an organization fair showcasing RSO’s and other units that practice sustainability.  Planning for Earth Week 2012 will begin during the fall semester.  Would you like to help?  Please let us know!

  12. Quick payback projects

    Associated Project(s): 

    At some point in the past, perhaps FY 09, Terry Ruprecht and the Provost’s office worked out an agreement to provide a funding source for “quick payback projects.” This meant that the payback was expected to be quick, typically in the 1-3 year range. This was a onetime funding source.  A variety of projects (10-15) have been brought forward and funded at a value of approximately 1 million dollars. These projects have included lighting retrofits, fume hood removals, chiller control upgrades, adding variable frequency drives (VFDs) to HVAC equipment,  temperature control  upgrades, and hot water control valve replacements.
