1. Introduction

1.1 President’s Commission on Sustainability


At the behest of President Dillman and Provost Borland, the President’s Commission on Sustainability was formed and met for the first time in April 2008. A letter from Provost Borland suggested that the Sustainability Commission focus on three areas: 1. Education – by bringing “all members to a similar understanding of the issues relative to sustainability”, 2. developing a sustainability strategic plan, and 3. developing implementation strategies.

During the past academic year, the Sustainability Commission has undertaken several activities to promote sustainability and to increase the amount of sustainable practices on campus. Much of the work has been done by the five subcommittees (Mission Statement, Green Outreach, Carbon Footprint, Recycling, and Transportation) established in the fall 2009 semester. These subcommittees, which are chaired by members of the Sustainability Commission, have met separately throughout the year. Summaries of the subcommittee activities are included in the following section.

In addition to the meetings and activities of the Sustainability Commission and its subcommittees, significant progress was made in two other areas. Patricia Campbell has worked with faculty, staff, and administration to apply for several sustainability-related grants (see section 5). Darlene Farris-Labar and Steven Labadie have developed a sustainability webpage as part of the ESU homepage, which has helped to publicize some of the end-of-spring-semester sustainability events. The sustainability webpage, http://www4.esu.edu/today/sustainability/index.cfm, can be found by clicking on the “News & Events” icon on the lower left-hand side of the ESU homepage and then clicking on the “Sustainability at ESU” icon.
