Central Sustainability Sustainability Walking Tour Training

A brief description of the employee educators program (1st program):

In November of 2020, students Eric Urbaniak and Teresa Homsi developed a program in which University faculty and staff could be trained in operational sustainability at Central Michigan University. They would be taken on a campus tour highlighting the composting and solar power programs, as well as other sustainability programs at the University. The trained faculty and staff are then enabled to provide the sustainability tour to peers. While the program is in its infancy, two Student Activity Center staff have already registered to become trained experts, as well as several science faculty members on campus.


A brief description of the employee educators program’s target audience (1st program):

The target audience for this program is all faculty and staff who are willing and able to take a sustainability tour around campus led by a trained faculty or staff member.

Number of served employees calculated through an estimated value of 3 educated staff or faculty members per tour. Thus, an estimated 180 faculty and staff will be served annually through this program.
