Project Title: Sustainability at Ohio Wesleyan University

Mentor: Dr. John Krygier
During the Spring of 2016, students of Geog 499 and faculty member John Krygier are working on sustainability projects including May Move Out, reusable food containers, and a gardening and food collaboration between MTSO, Stratford and OWU. The students are also involved with revising a draft campus-wide sustainability plan that was created by students last year. There is a growing interest in sustainability on campus but little funding for projects, little comprehensive knowledge, and no sustainability coordinator. With some effort of a few students, faculty, and staff this challenge can be met. The main objectives for the group have been expanding learning opportunities for students who want to be more involved in sustainability on campus and actually changing university infrastructure to make sustainability possible.
