Sustainability at Madonna University
We were pleased to be joined at our opening faculty business meeting in August 2008 by Debra Rowe. Rowe has been active in organizations and at the national level on a campaign for sustainability. She has been a professor of renewable energies and energy management at Oakland Community College for more than 20 years. Visit Rowe's USLF bio for more information. Rowe's Madonna University presentation is below.
Education and Action for a Sustainable Future
Debra’s challenge to us was to incorporate sustainability topics into both our courses and our work at Madonna University. The most predominate example is our current new “green” building initiative. Below are some other ideas that our Madonna University faculty and staff have incorporated into their work. Please contact Dina DuBuis, Registrar and Chairperson of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Franciscan Values, firstname.lastname@example.org to share some of yours.
