Sustainability at UAF: How You Can Get Involved.

Did you know that UAF has an Office of Sustainability and a Sustainability Plan? Or that the funding of many sustainability-orientedprojects at UAF comes from a fee that the students imposed on themselves? Do you want to get involved?

Come to this workshop to learn about these topics and more. Members of the Office of Sustainability and the RISE (Review of Infrastructure, Sustainability, and Energy) Board will be on hand to talk about all that they do to promote sustainability at UAF. They will share ways that you can join the effort including adding things to your syllabi to educate students.

Contact the Office at 474-5070 with questions.
