REPORTING OUT

Capturing Sustainability on Film
Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, was named the winner of the National Wildlife Federation’s annual competition “Chill Out: Climate Action on Campus.” The university was one of six schools that were honored in this competition, which recognizes innovation and implementation of sustainability practices on campuses. In a short video entry, several sustainability projects on EMU’s campus were highlighted: in particular, the solar array installed on a library roof in fall 2010. Other features emphasized were a LEED-certified residence hall, campus greenhouse, trayless dining hall, campus garden, composting, a bicycle cooperative, and the integration of sustainability into the academic curriculum. The awardwinning video can be viewed at emu.edu/ video/green. The other schools honored in the competition were Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro, North Carolina; Baylor University in Waco, Texas; Manhattan Comprehensive Night and Day High School in New York; Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla; and Montreat College in North Carolina. The contest’s winners were recognized in the National Wildlife Federation’s “Chill Out: Climate Action on Campus” webcast in April. The schools also received a monetary award from the organization to continue developing further sustainability initiatives in the future. “I am proud that there are organizations like the National Wildlife Federation that care about the environment and recognize universities’ sustainability efforts,” says Lindsey Kolb, a producer of EMU’s award-winning video. “I hope that other universities and organizations will be inspired by our video to try their own sustainable initiatives.”

University Program Makes History with Award
The University of Florida Department of Housing and Residence Education in Gainesville has been recognized as the first university program in the world to be awarded Green Shield Certification from the Integrated Pest Management Institute of North America, Inc. The certification resulted from a year-long process to meet the demanding standards established by the IPM, an independent third-party evaluator. These standards include expertise in integrated pest management, close monitoring and inspection of pest-related problems, minimal use of pesticides, and the record keeping of pesticide performance when utilized. Green Shield Certification lasts for one year and can be renewed through completion of an annual update form. Additionally, an on-site evaluation is also performed every three years to assess pesticide management. For more information regarding the Green Shield Certification standards, visit www.greenshieldfcertified.org.

Illinois Wins Ad Award
Campus Dining Services at Illinois State University in Normal has won a Silver ADDY® award from the Peoria Ad Club. In collaboration with University Marketing and Communications, Campus Dining Services created a passport for students to use as they visited different venues throughout the dining center. Each venue had a corresponding page and passport stamp. The Peoria Ad Club is a part of the American Advertising Federation. The ADDY® Awards are that industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting more than 50,000 entries each year in local competitions.
