Abstract

On behalf of their client Johnson C. Smith University (JCSU), three Nicholas School Masters of Environmental Management students have composed the framework for a future comprehensive sustainability plan. The purpose is to build an ethos of sustainability on JCSU’s campus and in its surrounding communities. The framework is organized through a four-tiered process: creating a University vision, creating a University mission, building a sustainability committee and staff, and implementing specific sustainability strategies. These strategies enumerate short, mid, long-term phasing-in of energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions reductions , increased faculty and student awareness through a dorm energy conservation competition and “Eco-Reps” peer education program, improved campus operations in recycling and dining, and community outreach programs.
