Description Following the signing of the Climate Commitment, University representatives from various areas within campus formed a working group to begin to chart our course in terms of the University's Sustainability Initiatives. A coordinator (Jim Jensen) was assigned, and a consultant was brought on board to calculate the University's Carbon Footprint. Currently ISU has a Forum on Sustainability and the President's Climate Commitment scheduled for February 20, 2008. Within one week of the forum, the institutional structure will be completed to include a steering committee and working groups.
