Engagement iCAP Team (Ongoing)
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.
SWATeams report annually on progress made toward Illinois Climate Action Plan objectives in their area of focus.
This team focuses on the objectives found in Chapter 7 of the iCAP 2020:
7.4 Incorporate sustainability-related problem solving in the GivePulse system for public engagement, and track local collaborations for sustainable solutions. Increase local collaborations by 10% per year from FY22 to FY24.
7.5 Support programs to develop love of nature and sustainability among children, with an annual Youth Sustainability Summit led by local teenagers with guidance and mentoring from campus and community sustainability leaders.
