A brief description of the policies and/or programs:

At this time, the University is tracking emissions annually and has included a goal in the 2010 Climate Action Plan to develop an emissions offset program. Some individual departments, for example the College of Law, are using videoconferencing in lieu of travel whenever possible. However, there is no university-wide guidance at this time.

The website URL where information about the policies and/or programs is available:

See windpower campaign for possible earnings. Talk to Jen. Chris Hill professor biochemistry. Probably a no, but check it out.
