During summer 2008, several students used AASHE’s standards to create a Sustainability at Rensselaer report. Now, five years later, it is time to start creating a new Sustainability Report. The goal of this project is to complete the report by the end of Spring Semester 2014.
September 2013: Meet with previous planners, begin dividing up tasks.
October 2013: Begin contacting RPI faculty and staff who either know information we need or know other people who would be better contacts.
November 2013: Continue with above, compile information.
February 2014: Compile information and write report; finish gathering any information not already gathered.
March 2014: Finish report, proofread.
April 2014: Report comes out.
Meetings for the fall will be on Thursdays at 5pm in the Environmental Education Center (Games Room of the Union) starting on September 19th.
Elizabeth Anderson will be taking the lead for this effort; email sustainabilityreport(at)union(dot)rpi(dot)edu if you would like to get involved. Please do not send general emails to this email; instead, please use sstf(at)union(dot)rpi(dot)edu.
Long overdue post, but as of Summer 2014, SSTF moved to its permanent home over at http://sstf.union.rpi.edu/. If you happen to have stumbled on this site through Google searches, please click over to that site for updated information! Everything here should be duplicated there.
SSTF facilitates communication between RPI’s environmental clubs, as well as communication related to sustainability between the environmental clubs and the RPI administration. Currently, SSTF is focusing on improving communication between RPI’s environmental clubs. A list has been created for environmental club officers.
Another project to facilitate communication is a campus-wide Facebook group for RPI students belonging to sustainability clubs or just interested in sustainability. This group can be found here. Note the strict spam rules. We want to encourage relevancy and a healthy, respectful group. You may e-mail the SSTF external (sstf<at>union.rpi.edu) if you have any questions.
This is the new website for RPI’s Student Sustainability Task Force. We’ll be moving everything over here, updating things, and then moving this site to the Union server over the next few weeks. Have any input? Fill out the form below!
