Making Higher Education Sustainable

The newer buildings at Oregon public universities tend to be LEED-certified for "green-ness," and campuses have been known to use things like compostable flatware in food services. 

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.
