Sustainability Day 2009

Celebrate Sustainability

Today, Tuesday, Oct. 27, marks Xavier's inaugural Sustainability Day. Campus-wide efforts to make the University a more sustainable, environmentally friendly place are already underway. In some cases, efforts have been ongoing for years; others, such as the new construction, have brought about new efforts. A new video brings us up to date about past efforts and points to some future directions. October's Xavier Faces are Niké Cline-Bailey, generalist in the Office of Human Resources, and Doug Olberding, chair and associate professor for the Department of Sport Studies. And of course, we have our regular features as well. We invite you to send us your thoughts or suggestions.

Employee Recognition

Inside Xavier is pleased to spotlight the University's monthly Employee Recognition Program, which publicly recognizes individuals who consistently reflect our Jesuit mission in terms of being men and women for others, consistently go the extra mile in their efforts and consistently put Xavier's interests ahead of their own. This honor is part of a larger initiative of the President's Administrative Council to better inform, connect and recognize faculty, staff and administrators throughout the institution. Honorees are selected by the President's Cabinet. If you would like to nominate someone for employee recognition, fill out our nomination form.
