Sustainability Is Everyone’s Issue
Institute on Sustainability at
Harvard University (http://www.myacpa.org/pd/sustainability/)
June 11-14, 2008

The campus is quieter. Commencement is over. June is just the perfect time to consider campus sustainability efforts. 

      • What are your next moves? 

      • How will you establish those partnerships that will propel you forward? 

      • How will you remove the barriers blocking your way? 

      • What knowledge, awareness, and skills do you need to make a difference?


The ACPA Institute on Sustainability at Harvard University is designed for everyone working in higher education including all higher education administrators, staff from all areas of the institution, faculty, students, community members and business partners. Whether you attend as a campus team or as an individual, you will find the presentations, facilitated conversations, and discussions beneficial as you work to move your campus forward. The number of participants at the institute is intentionally limited to allow for an intimate experience, filled with enlightening conversations, problem-solving discussions, and idea-sharing moments. Nationally renowned sustainability experts will converge with participants, resulting in learning opportunities that are impossible to replicate through other mediums. 


Participants are able to attend sessions that provide information on all aspects of sustainability ranging from the basics to the advanced; to network with other college and university colleagues and with experts in the field; to celebrate the successes experienced as well as problem-solve barriers; and to have optional time to create or refine action plans. Whether you are just beginning sustainability work on your campus or looking to progress advanced efforts, the institute has something for you.  Share this invitation with many others at your institution to build knowledgeable coalitions of support and action for sustainability.


Successful sustainability efforts result from the proper tools, persistent focus, strategic support, and bountiful inspiration. Join us at Harvard University from June 11-14, 2008 and find what you need to lead your colleagues, campus and community forward.


The ACPA Institute on Sustainability is supported by the Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium and the Disciplinary Associations Network for Sustainability. Co-sponsors of the institute include AASHE, Bon Appétit, NACA, NIRSA, SCUP, and AACC.
