Those are just a few of the efforts to address sustainability in higher education, the focus of a whole conference later this week in Eugene. 

Lane Community College President Mary Spilde is host and a speaker for the conference. 

We visit with her for thoughts on sustainability and the general challenges of running a community college in our time.
