background information


The 1st Annual Earth Charter Community Summit at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh brought a charge of fresh holistic awareness that was previously dormant to the University’s eager student body. Rusty Callier presented at that time the environmental Audit he had done at the University of Wisconsin River Falls and a panel of the University’s administration showed encouragement towards any student willing to do the same on our own campus. The Campus-wide Environmental Audit is still a work in progress three years later through the hard work of a small group of dedicated students. This website was created as a means of educating students about the Universities environmental impacts and to encourage the institutionalization of the audit. This Environmental Audit is meant to be an ongoing means for improvement. The recommendations that are made suggest ways of improving and are not meant to point out weaknesses or to downgrade previous efforts at sustainability nor are the only means of improvement. The objective is to continue the greening of our University and to minimize our impacts whenever possible. Below are some links to additional information regarding the Environmental Audit at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and other universities.
