4.) Submit abstracts to 2013 conference of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education
The world’s most exciting campus sustainability conference is coming to our neck of the woods this fall. The 2013 AASHE “Resiliency & Adaptation” conference will be in Nashville over our fall Break, Oct. 6–9. The Sustainability Council is organizing for a strong UofL presence and will help defray costs for presenters. Consider using time over spring break to submit an abstract by March 21 to present sustainability case studies, workshops, ideas, art/film/performance, or research.

5.) Blackboard courses from spring 2012 to be archived and deleted
Blackboard courses from spring 2012 will be archived and then deleted after Friday, March 22. This is a semi-annual process by the Delphi Center that frees up server space for new courses. If you have a specific need to keep a spring 2012 course available beyond March 22, please submit a request by that date. Additional information on this process can be found in the Blackboard News module on the login page.
