Unity Experience Sustainability Series

Unity Experience Sustainability Series — Fall, 2010

 Each fall Unity Experience instructors work with the Sustainability Office and others on campus to meaningfully incorporate sustainability efforts into the first-year experience.  In addition to a brief “Sustainability 101” class session, students participate in a number of outside-of-class sustainability activities.

 Sustainability at Unity is not the exclusive purview of any one department or group; rather sustainability efforts are supported by students, staff, and faculty from throughout the campus. The Unity Experience Sustainability Series is intended to introduce students to a variety of these initiatives.
