At the start of the semester, the Office of Sustainability launched its Green Office Certification program and challenged offices/departments to prove that they have what it takes to become Green Office certified.
Currently there are 4 amazing offices/departments that proved they certainly have what it takes, and there are 2 more in the running.
The First certified Green Offices:
The Office of Admission (Platinum)
The Office of Career Development and Personal Counseling (Gold)
The Center for Women and Gender (Silver)
The Office of Sustainability (Gold)
Office currently in the running to get certified:
The Political Science Department (Gold)
The Wilderness Program (Silver)
The Green Office Certification program was designed to educate and encourage members of the Saint Michael’s community to adopt sustainable practices in their workplaces. We focused on the office/department as a whole to stress the importance of peers/colleagues encouraging and supporting one another as they make (sustainable) behavioral changes.
