“I get a sense of fulfillment from working towards improving the quality of life that people experience. My studies in social work have instilled me with strong prosocial values and a passion for fighting for equity, not just within my community but across the entire globe. I look forward to meeting like-minded individuals who also share a passion for creating positive changes in society.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Sustainable Campus Project aims to explore the challenges in maintaining sustainability with the vertical campus model that the university is adopting. Many students have raised concerns in relation to the loss of green space and connections to place/country. In response to these concerns, The Sustainable Campus Project plans to develop mental health and well-being programs as well as open forums to broaden the discussion about vertical campus life and its impact on students. We also hope to initiate sustainability initiatives on existing vertical campuses that will help to address the current environmental concerns, as well as enrich the lives of the diverse student and staff population of the institution. This will, in turn, benefit the wider community as WSU continues to work with local communities and other key stakeholders in the region.
