|Gonzaga Affirms Commitment to Environment|
A Green Gonzaga
From recycling and green buildings to research on “parasitic power” reduction and Third World windmill design, the Gonzaga University community has long been and remains committed to responsible environmental stewardship. Affirming this commitment, Gonzaga this month officially recognized the Advisory Council on Stewardship and Sustainability (ACSS) as an advisory body to the president’s Cabinet.
Starting as a grassroots effort among faculty, staff and students, the group will be help shape proposals that aim to reduce and mitigate Gonzaga’s adverse impact on the environment, promote awareness of environmental issues, and serve as a hub for information concerning the University’s environmental impact.
“In keeping with its Jesuit, Catholic and humanistic mission, Gonzaga University takes seriously its solemn responsibility to safeguard the integrity of our natural world for present and future generations and is committed to being a leader in responsible environmental stewardship,” noted Gonzaga President Father Robert J. Spitzer, S.J.
The Council is co-chaired by philosophy Associate Professor Brian Henning and psychology Assistant Professor Monica Bartlett. A new Web site has been developed to promote these efforts.
