Any member of campus can become a sustainability coordinator. This program provides for specialized training in sustainability and sustainable practices of the university. The Sustainability Coordinators are given a training session at the inception of their role and required to complete a refresher training session every two years. In addition, a Northwest Earth Institute discussion course on climate change was offered to all coordinators to participate in with in intention of training them to hold recurring discussion courses in the future with other staff and faculty. Our first discussion course was held this fall. We are now positioned to conduct these discussion courses for any individual that wishes to participate. Our facilities staff was provided the opportunity to obtain the GPRO fundamentals certification and the advanced operations and maintenance or construction management certification. The training was held in October of 2014.
