We work to integrate sustainability into Western's culture, academics and student life while utilizing student energies for realization of sustainability initiatives. We provide a liaison to sustainability initiatives on campuses regionally and nationally, and build connections between Western and the greater Bellingham community. Our goals for Western include the following: To develop a unified set of sustainability metrics and indicators with the purpose of building awareness and understanding on campus. To conduct a baseline assessment of present efforts at Western. To create a vision and strategic plan that outlines steps needed for Western to lead in sustainable practices using our natural, financial and human resources. To advise on effective step-by-step implementation so our respective academic programs and operations can become leaders by example through their efforts.
