Engagement SWATeam (Proposed)

Project History

  • 12/10/2020

    On December 10, the Engagement SWATeam met to discuss progress within each of its subteams:

    1. Sustainability education and training requirements for new students and faculty

  • 11/22/2020

    The Engagement SWATeam members met on November 20 with Eric Green (Education SWATeam) to discuss first-year sustainability education recommendations.


The Engagement SWATeam 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 outreach of campus and potentially community opportunities.

Team members aim to communicate and enhance an evolving culture of sustainability and work to promote programs, outreach events, and involvement opportunities. The hope is that every individual on campus is aware of the sustainability initiatives and our commitment to being as environmentally conscious as possible.

The Engagement SWATeam 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.
