The Symposium on Sustainability is a free event, designed to update faculty, staff and students on the university's green activities and inspire them to greater efforts, said Merry Rankin, director of sustainability.

"Those who can't attend the entire symposium are welcome to drop in for selected sessions," Rankin said.

She encouraged all symposium goers to register, whether they intend to attend all or part of the symposium, so that planners can provide adequate refreshments and supplies. Register online by 5 p.m. Feb. 22.

The symposium will feature presentations by a national expert on water, corporate leaders, and university researchers, instructors and students involved in green projects.
