This summer, interns from Lafayette & Syracuse explored campus sustainability — especially the widespread problems with a lack of transparency, awareness and engagement — and analyzed possible weaknesses in the campus Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System [STARS].
As with most of our internship projects, interns use research & analysis to rethink the way we do things. Projects are generally designed to give students hands-on experience in developing solutions and getting them implemented.
We continue to support and work with a variety of efforts to help people get healthy food by promoting school & community gardens and access to food that truly supports health & sustainability. For an overview of the issues, see Healthy Food for Healthy Communities or our page on Sustainable Campus Dining Resources. And get involved in the Food Policy Council’s efforts to improve the food system here in the Lehigh Valley.
