Our Green GSE Initiative looks to make promising inroads in 2017 with upcoming classes on sustainable workspaces, partnering with the University on their incentive-based Cardinal Green initiative, and tracking usage and consumption more closely so that we can monitor our successes and where else we can make a difference. Below, you will find products and vendors that can help you make a difference as well, all of which are available on SmartMart. By combining our efforts, we can continue to make the GSE a model of sustainability.
The GSE provides access to Wellness Rooms in the School of Education Building (Room 227) and the CERAS Building (Room 112). These Wellness Rooms are available to everyone within our community, though priority will be given to nursing mothers.
The GSE provides access to all-gender restrooms in both the School of Education Building and CERAS. Both restrooms are located on the first floor. Although the all-gender restroom in CERAS is not a single-stall restroom, it is single-occupancy, so please take note of locking the door behind you when in use. There will be more changes to come in making these spaces welcoming for all who use then.
The Big Tree classroom in CERAS room 108 will undergo renovations and is now closed. With faculty input we have designed a flexible classroom that will help foster collaboration and hope many of you will enjoy. The construction is scheduled around the many conferences in CERAS this summer and noisy work will be conducted early in the morning or when the lobby area is free.
Incorporation of community spaces and private/semi-private quiet spaces for students continues to be part of GSE renovation plans moving forward. Please check back for continued updates.
