The work group’s strategy will be to build awareness of the Coalition’s efforts among:
- The campus community (students, faculty, staff)
- Potential students
- Donors and funders
- Businesses and nonprofit partners
- Environmental organizations
- The northeast Ohio region
- The nation
Efforts will be focused on educating these audiences on what sustainability is; how Cleveland State is leading the way regionally (and eventually nationally); how sustainability is a vital part of the CSU engaged learning experience; how people can become involved and contribute to its success; and how the Coalition’s efforts will benefit the region.
Tactics include creating a dynamic, user-friendly web site that details CSU’s efforts in energy, waste/recycling, building materials, food services, transportation, green space and water conservation. Curriculum and academic programs about sustainability will be highlighted. Students will share their experiences. Internships, co-ops and research projects and opportunities will be featured.
