This symposium will bring MDC faculty, staff and administrators together to assess the status of environmental sustainability at the College, and update MDC's Sustainability Goals. Topics for discussion will include potential funding sources and strategies for promoting environmental literacy among our faculty, staff and students. Key individuals from Facilities, Purchasing, Resource Development and educational initiatives will report on the current status of the College's efforts. Participants will have the opportunity to network with others to explore ideas and approaches that could be implemented within the College, to achieve a lighter ecological footprint.

Finally, participants will be asked to identify sustainability initiatives, such as grant opportunities that will help fund the incorporation of sustainability into courses, disciplines or departments, and begin posting information on the new MDC SharePoint sustainability site.

Written reflections on the morning's activities are due within two weeks and will be collected by the Director of the Earth Ethics Institute for workshop credit.
