Sustainability. I thought you“d be interested in some information that President Wight recently sent to donors about all the sustainability initiatives happening on campus: http://alumni.weber.edu/controls/email_marketing/admin/email_marketing_email_viewer.aspx?sid=953&eiid=712&seiid=341&usearchive=1&puid=4c81cc68-d24c-4434-a265-2d41c3053a24. In addition, here‘s a link to the latest sustainability newsletter: https://apps.weber.edu/wsuimages/environment/Newsletters/April2014.pdf. Congratulations to Breauna Mack with Sodexo for being awarded the WSU Sustainability Spotlight. And speaking of sustainability, the WSU community garden is now located behind Wildcat Village.
Diversity Fact: Did you know that in 2013 more than 90% of WSU students felt our campus was welcoming and respectful? However, within the past year or so 8% of students reported experiencing discriminatory behavior on campus. If you would like to know more about student perceptions of diversity on campus, check out the results from the 2013 Campus Climate Survey at http://www.weber.edu/SAAssessment/surveys.html. These data may be helpful as you set your diversity and inclusion goals for the new academic year.
