Key Objective: 11. Outreach
In addition to the learning opportunities in the classroom, Illinois is proud to offer a wide variety of co-curricular programs for students to get involved in the sustainability field.
Goal: All students, faculty, staff, and community members should be informed and have ample opportunity to participate in sustainability efforts.
42. Support and communicate about co-curricular student sustainability programs, including RSOs, the Student Sustainability Leadership Council, and the Student Sustainability Committee.
43. Strengthen and communicate about sustainability outreach programs. Specifically, at least half of the full-time campus staff will be participating in the Certified Green Office Program by FY20.
» Campus and community outreach programs include iSEE’s Certified Green Office Program, the Urbana-Champaign Energy Star Challenge, Champaign County Sustainability Network, the Scholarship of Sustainability Seminar Series, Campus Conservation Nationals, and more.
» Work with local governments to create a Metropolitan Climate Action Plan – a plan that aligns the sustainability goals of the U of I, Champaign, Urbana, and CUMTD.
