Executive Summary

Sustainability Studio is an upper-level elective offered through the College of the Environment’s Program on the Environment. Sustainability Studio is an experiential learning course where students work in groups of 3-5 on different projects with clients from the UW and Seattle community to improve sustainability around the topic of the quarter. The topic of Sustainability Studio changes every quarter to allow for dynamic learning that addresses sustainability across a broad spectrum of issues. For the Spring 2019 quarter the topic of Sustainability Studio is "Sustainability in Pac-12 Athletics" in anticipation of the Pac-12 Sustainability Conference. Clients for this quarter’s student projects include UW Athletics, UW Recycling, UW Transportation, and Meal Matchup. Attending the Pac-12 Sustainability Conference will allow students to share what they’ve learned and researched throughout the quarter related to sustainability in athletics, as well as learning from the many guests and speakers attending the conference. The goal of this project is to continue pushing for increased sustainability in athletics which the attending students will contribute to as they report out on their experiences from the Pac-12 Sustainability Conference.
