The Brandeis Campus Sustainability website is highly content rich with many resources that are continuously updated. Brandeis actually has one of the most frequently clicked on websites in the world for the search term "campus sustainability".

The Sustainability Initiative frequently answers questions and inquiries from campus staff and students. For example, recently we gave a tour to Bentley University staff and students interested in some of our initiatives.

The Campus Sustainability Initiative and Eco Reps presented at the 2009, 2011, and 2012 Eco Rep Symposiums to share some of their successful programs.

Janna Cohen-Rosenthal, former Sustainability Coordinator presented AASHE national conferences. Janna also helped organize a series of conference calls relating to Campus Sustainability Communications open to the public called "Media Strategies for Sustainability".
