University of Colorado Environmental Board Resolution

Whereas the University of Colorado at Boulder has a long history of environmental leadership; and

Whereas there is currently no comprehensive environmental council or committee which sets policy or makes policy recommendations to the campus chancellor; and

Whereas 24% of colleges and universities do have environmental councils; and

Whereas CU Boulder is a signatory to the Talloires Declaration, which commits the campus to " convene university faculty and administrators with environmental practitioners to develop curricula, research initiatives, operational systems, and outreach activities to support an environmentally sustainable future"; and

Whereas the Blueprint for A Green Campus, which has been formally supported by the UCSU and the Boulder Faculty Assembly, recommends the creation of a campus environmental council; and

Whereas the committee set up by the chancellor to review the Blueprint for a Green Campus is ad hoc, has a limited scope, and does not represent the full spectrum of campus constituencies and expertise;

Therefore

1) The UCSU Environmental Board recommends that the chancellor create a campus environmental council; and

2) The Environmental Board recommends that the council include students, faculty, staff, and administrators, and include nonvoting members who are representatives from off campus local, state, and federal environmental agencies; and

3) The Environmental Board recommends that the council be charged with developing proactive policies and implementation strategies to reduce the environmental impacts of the university; and

4) The Board recommends that the council be charged to review and develop implementation strategies for the Blueprint For a Green Campus, develop implementation strategies for the environmental management section of the campus master plan, and recommend other policies that will contribute to the long term sustainability of the University of Colorado at Boulder.

5) The Board recommends that the campus resource conservation committee, the Solid Waste Advisory Board, and the Hazardous Materials Advisory Board all serve as standing subcommittees to the environmental council. In addition, other subcommittees may be formed as needed.
