Name of the institution’s featured sustainability program, initiative, or accomplishment:
Office of the President Sustainability Working Group (2021)

A brief description of the institution’s featured program, initiative, or accomplishment:

President Scott Green has asked this working group to finalize a white paper for the creation of an entity capable of executing on the university’s strategic desire to be known for sustainability. This may include identifying certificates, degrees and courses we offer, the research that we pursue under this umbrella and how the entity will organize and interface with other university stakeholders. The white paper should answer the question of what separates the University of Idaho from competitors offering similar degrees, certificates and research focus areas. The audit of current offerings would result in recommendations for the early opportunities to market existing degrees and research focused on sustainability, as well as include recommendations for future focus areas in sustainability.
