Has the institution advocated for federal, state, and/or local public policies that support campus sustainability or that otherwise advance sustainability?:

A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability, including the issues, bills, and ordinances for or against which the institution has advocated:
Example = Community weatherization action research team initiative on 10-10-10. Students went door to door in the Flagstaff community to get residents to pledge to weatherize their homes. This pledge was used to demonstrate the level of interest in the community so that money would be put into these weatherization projects. Following this initiative the group successfully lobbied the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) to grant a $2.7 Million dollar revolving loan fund for future weatherization work through Unisource. In addition, NAU faculty, staff, and students serve on various City Council commissions and sustainability boards (sustainable economic development initiative, friends of flagstaff's future, USGBC) across the community. One of NAU's staff members is also a City Council woman who advocates for sustainability regualrly.
