Whitman College is proud to announce its role as a contributing co-host of the inaugural Washington Higher Education Sustainability Conference. The conference will be hosted by Western Washington University on Feb. 6 and 7. It is a collaborative effort by higher education institutions statewide to examine the issue of sustainability. Whitman is currently the only co-sponsor from this side of the Cascades.
The WAHESC program will explore ways to enhance sustainability at institutions of higher education, ways to build leadership capacity and the role of colleges and universities in driving advancement on environmental issues and building sustainable communities in the Pacific Northwest. Whitman will be represented in a panel discussion on divestment by junior Collin Smith ‘15. The conference will include a mix of keynote addresses, panels, experiential “lab” sessions and workshops.
