What Students Can Do

Post  MelissaPhillips on Mon Mar 02, 2009 7:15 pm

This is a type of evaluation that is done on universities and their sustainability efforts that can be viewed by prospective students or anyone, for that matter, that is interested in VCU's campus. An entire page that is dedicated to student activities, that provided a checklist that I thought could be very helpful in guiding our tasks in for the rest of the year and in the future.

Peterson's Survey of Sustainability Efforts in Higher Education: Student activities/services

1. Sustainability in new student orientation

2. Space dedicated to sustainability in a student newspaper

3. Sustainability-themed housing (residential hall, floor, or theme house) *this is checked as a "yes" for us VCU*

4. Model dorm room that demonstrates sustainable living principles

5. Student-run cafe that serves environmentally or socially preferable foods

6. Student publication focused on sustainability

7. Outreach materials about on-campus sustainability efforts, such as information kiosks and sustainability maps

8. On campus, organic garden for students

Want to help? Have additional ideas or ways to implement these?! Contact Roberto or Melissa
