The Hanley Sustainability Institute and the University of Dayton have joined a select group of schools as host institutions for the Oct. 20-22 Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education (GCSHE).
Organized by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), the event’s theme is “Mobilizing for a Just Transition.” The virtual conference seeks to deliver inspiring content, engaging networking opportunities and thought-provoking keynote speakers and presenters.
UD stands alongside Arizona State, Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, Colorado, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Texas, Wisconsin and others as hosts for a conference with a global audience of innovative professionals and students committed to a more sustainable future.
“We’re delighted to serve as a host,” said Ben McCall, HSI’s executive director. “The conference’s theme is resonant with so much activity currently going on at UD, including campus sustainability improvements, curricular innovations, faculty scholarship, community engagement, and our anti-racism action plan.”
