The New School celebrates the 10th annual Campus Sustainability Day, a national day recognizing higher education’s leadership role in sustainability, with a Sustainability Forum. This event will bring together key university leaders to update our community about infrastructure improvements that save energy and water, the green attributes and high performance design of the new University Center, and efforts to include sustainability in our curriculum.
An open dialogue will follow which is meant to encourage questions and comments, and share news about what others on campus are doing to further the university’s contributions to address some of the most pressing environmental issues.
