U. of Michigan launches 'Sustainability' site

Posted on April 12, 2010

The University of Michigan (U-M) launched a new Sustainability Website to showcase its ongoing achievements in sustainability research, teaching and university operations, as well as to raise campus awareness of — and engagement in — sustainability issues and activities, including transportation.

Designed as a central portal, the site provides a comprehensive overview of sustainability news, information, events and activities from across the entire campus. It will highlight the work being done to set campus goals for sustainable operations, and will communicate new operational milestones, such as the purchase of renewable energy credits.

The site also serves as a gateway to all sustainability education and research efforts at U-M, with extensive resources to help students discover relevant sustainability courses and programs. Stories on the site about faculty research and student learning experiences will illustrate U-M's interdisciplinary strengths in sustainability scholarship. Further, the site offers an events calendar, a collection of facts about U-M sustainability, featured initiatives and more.

The campus currently is working on establishing ambitious new goals for sustainable campus operations in areas such as energy use, transportation and building design. The goals will be announced in winter 2011.
