How High Impact Practices can change the course of the campus and the world.
This year's theme will be Campus as a Living Lab. Presentations and posters will focus on research projects using the physical or social environments of the university. The 'Campus as a Living Lab' is a unique opportunity to partner faculty and facilities management staff in using the campus as a forum for the exploration of sustainability concepts and theories. The program aligns the California State University's long-standing commitment to sustainability with the fundamental goal of preparing students for the workforce.
