Abstract

This report describes the design, progression, and launch of a Sustainability Website for the newly-formed Sustainability Initiative at WPI. We discuss the leadership role of higher education in sustainability and emphasize the critical need for communication and interactivity among university community members. Working with the President's Task Force on Sustainability, our team identified several key criteria that make a university's sustainability initiative and sustainability website effective. Using these criteria, we present a comprehensive WPI Sustainability Website (found at http://www.wpi.edu/About/Sustainability/) and several recommendations for the further development of the WPI Sustainability Initiative.
