These days, everyone talks about "going green." But that's not easy to do in a big city, on a campus built over forty years. The Center's Board of Trustees recently convened a "Going Green Task Force" to address the many challenges and opportunities on our urban campus.
In recent years, we have raised student awareness by weighing our trash, issuing reuseable beverage bottles, holding an annual display of everyday green products, and planting gardens on our roof!
Now we are researching ways to have a bigger impact. Ways such as reusing the water that we pump from the high water table on which our campus sits. And we're looking at the one roof without a playground to see if solar panels would work.
Going Green is here to stay. And so is this web page. So stop here often to find out how The Center takes seriously its responsibility to our environment. And while you're at it, give us your suggestions for greening CEE's campus.
