Every winter, the Sustainability Office hosts Climate Action Week to highlight sustainability efforts on our campus, reach broader audiences than usual, and rally support for environmental causes. Throughout the week, there will be daily events, discussions, and more! This year, we are partnering with the Cannon River Watershed Partnership's Year of Water festivities!
