A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :

Held every fall, Sustainapalooza is MU’s annual sustainability festival, with live music and games. It is open to anyone, but Staff Council has partnered with the Sustainability Office for the last few years to help host and promote the event. It features interactive displays where attendees can learn about sustainability on campus and how they can get involved.

In addition, Sustainability Office staff visit the Staff Council meetings once per semester to provide updates, brief training and solicit feedback. Representatives from Staff Council are responsible for sharing information with staff in their respective areas.

Also, any staff member may apply for staff development funds to attend a sustainability related conference, such as AASHE or Green Sports Alliance.
