Climate Action Week is a series of sustainability awareness and education events including environmentally-related movie screenings, speakers, contests and panel discussions on internal or external sustainable initiatives. The week also incorporates a no impact competition aimed at developing habits to reducing consumption and waste.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

We developed a weigh in system for students to come with their trash that they create over the two week period. There are multiple weigh-ins and we are able to see how the waste changes during the competition and look back at previous years.

Name of the campaign (2nd campaign):
Bike to Work Week

A brief description of the campaign, including how students and/or employees were engaged (2nd campaign):

Bike to Work Week was created in 2016 to encourage faculty and staff to bike to work when the weather starts to warm up and to reduce commuting emissions. Faculty and staff will have the opportunity to sign up and participate, logging their trips and mileage throughout the week. Individuals with the most enthusiasm and dedication will be recognized, and everyone will receive fun goodies for participating with the opportunity to win raffle prizes!


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign (2nd campaign):

We conduct a pre and post survey of the participants to gather information like total commute distance, a goal for biking this week, something they would like more information about, how many days they ended up biking and what challenged them (post-survey).
