Name Change: SCDI Becomes The Office of Sustainability Practices
We are starting the new academic year with a name change, moving from the Sustainable Community Development Initiative (SCDI) to the Office of Sustainability Practices. The Sustainability office has been in place at GVSU for 10 years, and Sustainability is now the seventh value at the University. We have moved from initiatives to defined practices in administration and campus operations, educational opportunities, student involvement, and community engagement. GVSU is known locally, regionally, nationally, and globally for applied sustainability best practices on campus and in the community.
Say Hello to Our New Campus Sustainability Coordinator
The Office of Sustainability Practices welcomes Yumiko Jakobcic as our new Campus Sustainability Coordinator. Yumi comes to us from Burlington, Vermont where she served as the Director of the Winooski Valley Park District. She will be coordinating campus activities, and working with staff and students to promote a sustainable lifestyle on campus. She would be delighted to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
