Resolutions

In keeping with the mission of the Council on the Environment (COTE) to “…encourage the development of an environmentally responsible campus community…”, the COTE membership periodically adopts resolutions of recommendation for consideration by the University administration.

As of the 2015-16 AY, those resolutions now are brought before the President’s Sustainability Working Group, to explore implications, practicality, available resources and opportunities for action by the university administration.

To maintain transparency, regardless of actions taken by University administration, all resolutions are posted on the COTE website.
