Does the institution collaborate with other colleges and universities to support and help build the campus sustainability community?:

A brief summary of papers, guides, presentations, and other resources the institution has developed to share their sustainability experience with other institutions:

Campus sustainability personnel routinely share information with other campuses through direct contacts (numerous), papers and articles, presentations, field trips, web resources, hosted-conferences, tours, and other forms of collaboration. As CU has been engaged in sustainability programming for over 40 years, the depth and breadth of inter-campus collaborations that have occurred are simply too numerous to count. A most notable recent example is the transition to and partnership with the University of Denver to host the Rocky Mountain Sustainability Summit, which heretofore had been hosted by CU for 14 years.

The names of local, state, regional, national, and other campus sustainability organizations or consortia in which the institution participates and/or is a member:


A brief summary of additional ways the institution collaborates with other campuses to advance sustainability :

Responsive to any and all requests from other campuses for information or assistance. For instance, since CU implemented zero waste at its football stadium, numerous requests for information from other athletic programs around the country are routinely fielded by CU personnel. An average of a call every week or two is received on just this issue alone. All CU departments provide information resources for peers at other campuses.
