Engagement iCAP Team (Ongoing)
The Engagement iCAP Team met for the first time this semester. Group discussed iCAP Engagement Objectives and potential recommendations to pitch for the Spring semester. Meeting minutes are attached.
The Engagement iCAP Team was formed in Fall of 2020 to communicate and elevate campus awareness of iCAP objectives and sustainability best practices.
The team is composed of faculty members, staff, and students who work collaboratively to support and recommend specific actions relating to the iCAP objectives with a particular focus on expanding and unifying distinct sustainability initiatives on campus.
Team members aim to connect silos of sustainability on campus, increase visibility of sustainability projects and research, and invite new students, staff, and faculty to embrace this culture.
The Engagement iCAP Team welcomes the opportunity to discuss potential actions, policies, and project recommendations to improve our campuswide reach and knowledge base.
