About Campus Sustainability Spotlight

Every month of the academic year, one of Grand Valleys eight colleges will be highlighted for their sustainability efforts in classes, events, programs, and more. In addition, we will feature sustainability efforts in facilities, dining, and other non-academic units. The goal is to showcase the variety of sustainability related events, classes, projects, and resources on campus so students and faculty and staff members can connect to sustainability related issues that interest them.
