Campus Sustainability Spotlight

Campus Sustainability Spotlight

For five consecutive years, the Grand Valley community has worked together to raise sustainability awareness during Campus Sustainability Week. That raised the question, “Why only one week? Isn’t sustainability awareness and practice throughout the year? During the course of a college career? A lifetime?” 

Now, we are proud to introduce Campus Sustainability Spotlight. Every month of the academic year, one of Grand Valley’s 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. 

Please join us in our first Campus Sustainability Spotlight year. Challenge yourself to learn how and why Grand Valley State University is one of the most sustainable colleges in the nation. Show your sustainable Laker pride!
