ransforming our world by Engaging Leadership & Legislation: TELL everyone!

Welcome to the 8th Annual Texas Regional Alliance for Campus Sustainability Summit.  Our focus this year is on Transforming our world by Engaging Leadership & Legislation: TELL everyone!

The Texas Regional Alliance for Campus Sustainability provides the time and space for dialogue on experiences and challenges in an open and collaborative environment.  We have moved beyond show and tell presentations towards skill building, rich discussions and deep dives into the challenges and solutions facing our institutions.

The summit is uniquely designed to appeal to campus teams and community leaders seeking sustainable development for their regions (i.e. sustainable managers, business officers, facilities staff, faculty, students, and higher education partners).  Design your submission to include key stakeholders in your project.  Participants at your session will benefit from many perspectives.

To help the Texas Regional Alliance for Campus Sustainability Programs Committee assess this submittal, provide the information requested in the application.  Clear, complete, and well-informed answers greatly enhance the Committee’s ability to understand and appreciate your submittal and may increase the probability that it will be accepted.  In particular, the Committee looks for a clear understanding of how this presentation will add to the experience, education and knowledge participants take away from the TRACS Summit.
