Facilities Initiatives

Sustainability

Here at the GSE, our mission is to advance community responsibility by (i) providing classes on sustainable work spaces, (ii) partnering with Stanford's my Cardinal Green program, and (iii) tracking usage consumption so that we can monitor our successes and identify opportunities where we can make a difference.

To support our mission, we are providing tips and visual aids to better educate our community on compostable and recyclable materials, and we are offering recommendations on earth-friendly products for your office and break room supplies. All of which are available on SmartMart via iProcurement.

Together we can Foster a campus culture committed to sustainability.

Wellness Room

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.

All Gender Restrooms

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.

CERAS 5th Floor Roof

This year the GSE has decided to animate the CERAS roof. With plenty of outdoor power, a great deal of shade, and an abundance of comfortable seating; this outdoor patio will make a great place for meetings, quiet work stations, or any hosted gatherings. You can now reserve this space on 25live.

CERAS 108 (Big Tree) Renovations

The Big Tree classroom in CERAS room 108 underwent renovations in Summer 2017. With faculty and student input, we designed a flexible classroom that will help foster collaboration and hope many of you will enjoy.

Community Spaces and Quiet Spaces

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.
