Gators Winning for Sustainability

It seems Gators are not just champions in sports. Many of our students are winning national and international awards for their work related to sustainability at UF. We want to thank the following students for their hard work, and congratulate them on their accomplishments:

Sara Hutton was awarded a 2008 Morris K. Udall Scholarship for her studies in sustainability and wildlife ecology and conservation.

Ryan Graunke won the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education's (AASHE) 2008 Student Sustainability Research Award for his work on the bio-digestion of Broward Dining Hall’s food waste to create methane fuel.

Hal Knowles was named the 2008 National Wildlife Federation Campus Ecology Fellow for his work on the UF Carbon Neutrality Action Plan.

Alison Erlenbach won the oikos Student Award 2008 in the 'Sustainable Campus' category for her project Campus Climate Solutions, which trains students to calculate carbon offset needs for events and businesses.
