Join the 2014 Summit!
Athletic Director, Gene Smith, The Ohio State University, providing the 2013 keynote at the Athletic Directors Workshop
Welcome to the fourth annual Collegiate Sports Sustainability Summit! This Summit offers attendees the chance to network, learn, and exchange ideas with peers from around the country on ways in which athletic and sports programs can join the campus movement to make investments into programs and activities that are socially, economically, and environmentally responsible.
Through the Summit, we strive to create an open, equal platform for inter-departmental collaboration. Representatives from student groups and athletic, recreation, sustainability, facilities, food service, and recycling departments are welcome.
New for 2014: Please consider answering the call for presentations and discussions by completing the Call for Presentations form and submitting it to the Summit organizers no later than January 31, 2014.
This year’s agenda is thoughtfully designed to bring together collegiate athletics staff, campus recreational managers, sustainability professionals, and recycling/facility managers together to identify ways to achieve common campus sustainability goals through sports and athletics, save money, foster better inter-departmental relationships, and increase recognition for your institution’s efforts.
The Summit features engaging speakers with real world experience in how to achieve economic and environmental results by going green in collegiate sports. The agenda also emphasizes opportunities to share and network through roundtables and informal meetings in a relaxed setting.
To ensure that you get the most out of your Summit experience, the Summit participation has been limited to 250 people. Don’t miss out on the chance to represent your school at this year’s Summit on June 25-27, 2014 in Boulder, Colorado.
Registration opens January 2014.
