Nominations open for Western's Second Annual Sustainability Awards

To honor the Western community's commitment and efforts to achieve sustainability, the Office of Sustainability and Western administration will recognize and celebrate the achievements of three individuals, groups, programs or projects that make important contributions to "Western Sustainability."  WWU's Second Annual Sustainability Awards are your chance to highlight endeavors which are moving us toward national leadership in sustainability. Submit a nomination today!

The concept and practice of sustainability is part of the mission statement and strategic plan of WWU, and is exemplified in academics, student life, operations, and connection to the greater community. Western is recognized for its campus-wide efforts through national rankings such as the Sierra Magazine's Cool School list, the Aspen Institute's Beyond Grey Pinstripes, and the EPA's Green Power Partnership. Our accomplishments are due to the actions of faculty, staff, students, administrators, and community neighbors throughout the campus and into Whatcom County.
