Sustainability Working Groups

Sustainable energy practices are a priority for Facilities Management and its energy advisory group. Knowing it's an effort that requires collaboration, awareness, and continued activity by people with the same goals, Facilities Management has networked with groups on campus also interesting in encouraging sustainable practices at the University.

For more information, contact the coordinator of sustainability at 906-487-2706.
