CLACS Earns Sprout Certification

The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies

Please join me in congratulating the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) Green Team for earning their Sprout certification, the second of four certifications through the IU Office of Sustainability’s Green Teams Program.

The CLACS team was formed earlier this year, and consists of 8 members (Michael Lemon, Alison Pitt, Rachel Dotson, Richard Valdez, John Kroondyk, Matthew Van Hoose, Shane Greene, and Sonja Manriquez). The initial formation of the CLACS Green Team was part of their Sustainable Development Initiative, which is funded through the Title VI National Resource Center grant from the US Department of Education.

With this being the second certification the CLACS team has earned in two months, it is no surprise that Michael Lemon, the team’s leader, has stated they will continue to make their office on Atwater Ave. a hub for sustainable practices on the IU Bloomington campus.

CLACS’s commitment to sustainability is just one example of how we, as a campus, can make a significant impact on environmental, social, and economic issues by restructuring how we live, learn, and work at Indiana University.

Once again, congratulations!
