A brief description of the event(s):

During spring semester of 2012 students collaborated with the Division of Student Affairs, the Student Government Association, and other groups to create, develop, and conduct an event called The Challenge, a two-week initiative designed to teach students about sustainability-related issues around the world. The goal of the challenge is to educate students and inspire them to engage and take action to address these global issues.

In the 2012 event five topical areas were addressed, including civic engagement, sustainability, poverty and hunger, education and public health.
