Concordia served as a regional host for the national conference of The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.
Twenty-three students, faculty and staff attended the event held Oct. 25-28 in Minneapolis.
Concordia representatives gave two oral presentations and five poster presentations at the conference. Presentations were about several of the sustainability efforts on campus including: the EcoHouse, a sustainable living-learning environment; COBBikes, the bike share program; and the Eco-Representatives, peer education on sustainable living.
“Whether they were presenting their hard work, or soaking up knowledge, it was an amazing opportunity that Concordia was able to be a part of AASHE,” says Samantha Hill, campus sustainability coordinator. “The event brings together various stakeholders within higher education to work towards the common goal of bettering the world for ourselves and for future generations.”
President Craft and Anne Craft also participated in the AASHE Conference workshops.
