“The pandemic really underscored how important community connections are to sustainability,” said Office of Sustainability assistant director Sarah Stoeckl. “Remote open houses during the past two years aimed to support those connections, but I’m so excited to return to in-person during this phase of the pandemic.”

All are invited to attend, and light refreshments will be provided. Masks are welcome. Sustainability Open Houses are sponsored by the Environmental Studies Program, Student Sustainability Center and Office of Sustainability.
