The carbon neutrality announcement made me feel like we’ve had an actual impact
I'm proud of my role in AU carbon neutrality. As a Student Sustainability Educator, I table at events and monitor trashcans to conduct waste management. Since this process may be new to some of our students, we explain how their actions and consumption patterns on campus affect the university's waste stream.
Student Sustainability Educators work with the Office of Sustainability on programs around campus.
Nearly 800 incoming AU students spent Welcome Week exploring their new city through service projects spanning all eight wards of the District.
Carbon Neutrality at AU = 10,000 passenger vehicles off the road per year
AU's electricity comes from 100 percent renewable sources
First University, Urban Campus, and Research University to reach carbon neutrality
