Meredith College recently approved its “Greenprint,” a plan for integrating sustainability into the College’s practices in education and daily operations.
The Greenprint plan was developed by the Meredith community in spring 2009, through a process that included visioning and prioritizing sessions. Students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumnae participated in the development of the plan, led by Meredith Sustainability Coordinator Laura Fieselman.
There are three main goals to Meredith’s Greenprint:
• Meredith will educate the campus community about sustainability;
• Meredith will model environmental responsibility in daily operations; and
• Meredith will integrate sustainability into campus administrative structure.
Each of the goals include several desired outcomes, including weaving sustainability into the curriculum where applicable; minimizing the amount of waste generated by the campus; and using sustainability to inform financial decisions on campus.
Meredith's Greenprint made the "News & Observer" Campus Notes blog on June 23. View the posting by clicking here .
