" I am thrilled to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship program and share my passion for sustainability solutions with the cohort of fellows and beyond. I believe lasting change begins with education of ourselves and those around us. My project will develop new opportunities on my university's campus to fulfill its commitments to sustainability.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Campus Sustainability through STARS Reporting
Furman University is currently rated gold through the Sustainability Tracking Assessment and Rating System (STARS) and this initiative will identify and influence sustainability gains to make the Furman community greener as a whole. Through data collection and assessment, this project seeks to highlight areas for sustainable growth in campus waste, transportation, carbon neutrality, dining, and purchasing. They hope to create and implement new projects to increase sustainability on campus.
