College and university campuses are realizing tangible benefits from establishing sustainability programs.  These programs result not only in significant energy and resource savings, but have been found to have positive effects on recruitment, campus morale, and public relations.  Recent initiatives, such as the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), have significantly raised the bar on these programs.

Whether you’ve already begun your campus sustainability program or you’re just starting, this webinar will provide you with the most up-to-date tools and knowledge necessary to manage a successful campus sustainability program.

This online event will cover:

  • Latest trends in campus sustainability.
  • Developing a sustainability team.
  • Developing metrics to support a sustainability effort.
  • Identifying the "stakeholders" within faculty, staff, and students to determine program opportunities.
  • Setting sustainability targets and developing a strategic plan (i.e., ACUPCC climate action plan).
  • Implementing the plan and reporting progress.

Moderator: John Spengler, Ph.D., is the Co-Chair of the Harvard Green Campus Initiative and Principal at EH&E. He is the Akira Yamaguchi Professor of Environmental Health and Human Habitation in the Exposure, Epidemiology & Risk Program, within the Department of Environmental Health, at Harvard University's School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts.

Presenter: Michael Crowley, MS, LEED AP, is the former Assistant Director of the Harvard Green Campus Initiative and now leads EH&E's Pathways to Campus Sustainability Program.  He led the USGBC LEED certification process for 28 university buildings; managed the Green Campus Revolving Loan Fund; developed Harvard’s web-based green design/build resources; and developed Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences greenhouse gas reduction commitment.

Presenter: William Nelligan is currently the Director of Environmental Health, Safety & Sustainability at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. He has been providing Wesleyan with EH&S duties since 1995 in several capacitates; he is currently the RSO as well as the EPA and OSHA compliance officer for the entire campus which includes undergraduate and graduate teaching and research labs. In 2005, he reinstituted the Recycling Committee which bloomed into the Sustainability Advisory Group for Environmental Stewardship. His work towards carbon neutrality has been focused on the collaboration and education of the entire campus.
