Student/Class Sustainability Project Ideas
2
Research, Data, Campus Operations
3
IAQ measurements
4
Water efficiency calculations for academic bldgs
5
Junk mail reduction - Track amount of junk mail delivered to students on campus, research ways to cut down or eliminate
6
Water conservation - Research potential for water conservation in showers, toilets, and sinks around campus
7
Lab energy efficiency - One fume hood in a lab can consume as much energy as a house. Research fume hood improvement opportunities.
8
Rain barrels - Research the potential for rain barrels on downspouts around campus. Quantify potential water capture amount; research how to use water; are there DC code issues?
9
CHarting Emissions from Food Services (CHEFS) - Based on a log of all of AU's food purchases, use a tool to determine the emissions resulting from the growing, transportation, and storage of AU's food purchases for TDR
10
Develop a carbon sequestration project
11
Increase double-sided printing on campus
12
Permeable paving - research opportunities on campus
13
Inventory campus locations using disposable take-away products; research reusable options
14
Replace expanded polystyrene (a.k.a. Styrofoam) with other types of food containers
15
Develop a system to help green events
16
LEED: Thermal comfort monitoring – look for single pane windows – use IR sensors to monitor, quantify potential HVAC savings from replacing with new windows
17
Move out waste reduction - especially for international students
18
Conduct light level survey to "right light" overlit areas
19
Perform waste audits on each of the campus buildings in the LEED Volume project
20
Research use of newspapers in res halls; potential to modify the number provided and reduce waste? Do people read them? Is there a better system?
21
Investigate a "green wall" for an area of campus, potentially the SIS sunken garden
22
Research plastic bag alternatives for the library as part of the bagless intiative - problem is books can be damaged in inclement weather so plastic bags still available on request
23
Research "conflict free" certification for electronics
24
Enhance student biking programs
25
Education, Publicity, & Design
26
Develop signs/video/etc to promote solar installation and its benefits
27
Signage in SIS about green features
28
Making cardboard recycling more clear and understood
29
Help create Earth Month ativities, theme and design
30
Design/create sustainability brochures
31
Write blog posts that could be uploaded onto AU's blogging site
32
Video documentation about innovative projects at AU - solar panels, solar hot water, green roofs, electric vehicles, zero waste goals, carbon neutrality goals; farms that supply our food
33
Planning, Events, & Engagement
34
Manage "green" graduation program
35
Plan a Green Career Fair w/ the Career Center
36
Work with Alumni/Development to help create a formal network of alumni working in sustainability
