Three Decades of Higher Education Excellence Through Collaboration
Student Sustainability Summits
Following the 2011 SMHEC Sustainability Conference, students requested an event exclusively for students. In Fall 2012, students from many of the member institutions planned and conducted their own inaugural 2012 Student Sustainability Summit.
The event, held at Governors State University, was attended by over 75 students and was deemed a great success.
Buoyed by this experience, the students planned and conducted the 2013 Student Sustainability Summit in the spring at Prairie State College. Over 100 students attended this session - again to rave reviews. The students plan to make this an annual spring event.
Both the SMHEC Sustainability Conference and the Student Summits are made possible through the sponsorship of generous businesses that have sustainability at the core of their enterprise. Without their support SMHEC would not be able to promote and encourage the sustainable activity on its member campuses.
