Focus-Discussion Lunch

September 10 (Tuesday), Focus-Discussion Lunch  11:30am until 1:00pm, Sustainability Assessment with Vic Shelburne (Emeritus Professor of Forestry and Natural Resources) and Caye Drapcho (Associate Professor of Biosystems Engineering): The Clemson University Commission on Sustainability was established in September of 2009 by President James Barker. In December of 2010, the commission released a draft of the University’s first comprehensive Sustainability Plan, acting as the basis for all sustainability practices at Clemson. The plan was filed in accordance with the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment, to which Clemson is a signatory. In 2018, a revised charter was adopted, and the commission became The Clemson University Sustainability Commission, and is the coordinating body for our efforts to become a model of sustainability among institutions. To creatively address sustainability, the commission facilitates collaboration among students, faculty, staff, and the community by integrating education, research, and public service with the social, economic, and environmental infrastructure.  Dr. Shelburne will give the Executive Presentation of the AASHE/STARS results (sustainability assessment) as well as discuss with attendees any other information/issues regarding this topic.
