A major environmental and education initiative is being launched on Thursday, September 28 to enhance the natural environment of the campus and provide hands-on green learning.  The Green Initiative Launch celebrates a partnership between the campus and Evergreen, a charity that builds the relationship between nature, culture, and community in urban spaces - in schools, communities and homes.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to participate:
