Sustainability Working Advisory Teams (SWATeams) (In Progress)

Description

In order to engage both subject matter experts across campus and interested members of the campus community, iSEE formed six topical Sustainability Working Advisory Teams (SWATeams).  Each SWATeam consists of a core group of 2 faculty, 2 staff, and 2 students who will do the detailed analysis, heavy lifting, and formulation of recommendations.  The core group will be surrounded by a larger consultation group of experts and stakeholders from around campus to provide information, advice, and ideas the core group.  Visit the iSEE website for the current SWATeam membership list, or fill in the online form to sign up as a consultation group member.

These groups are charged with formulating a plan to achieve iCAP goals, considering both short- and long-term aspects, and also with spawning actionable projects.
