Join the Campus Energy Challenge

JOIN the UMACS Campus Energy Challenge!

The goal of this competition is to decrease your campus's heat and electricity usage during the month of February 2011 by competing with other UMACS schools.  Data submitted by each participating campus will be baselined using data from the past three Februaries, which will be weather normalized (using heating degree days), and then compared to campuses from all over UMACS. The campus with the greatest overall energy savings per capita will WIN the UMACS Campus Energy Challenge!

UMACS Newsletter - April 16, 2009

Welcome to the inaugural e-newsletter of the Upper Midwest Association for Campus Sustainability. UMACS is a voluntary association of individuals working at colleges and universities throughout the Midwest to make curriculum, operations, and all aspects of higher education more sustainable. The mission of UMACS is to facilitate communication and sharing between individuals and schools through conferences, electronic resources, and peer to peer communication. Having hosted successful conferences in 2006 and 2008, UMACS is expanding its focus to do more in the space between biennial conferences. The UMACS Steering Committee is launching this e-newsletter to expand our outreach and bring more campuses into the network in order to enhance the work of campus sustainability.  Please forward this e-newsletter to others who are interested in campus sustainability.
