Paul Persons Sustainability Award Nomination Deadline February 15

The Paul Persons Sustainability Award was established in 2008 by family and friends to honor Paul Persons' memory and to help realize his vision of a CSU system-wide emphasis on sustainability. Paul wanted every student in the CSU to have an opportunity to learn how to apply sustainable practices in their chosen field and to create a more just society.

The Institute for Sustainable Development is responsible for soliciting nominations and for working with a faculty committee to select one person each year to receive the award. Nominations are now being accepted for a current CSU, Chico faculty only now through February 15, 2013. This award will be presented at This Way to Sustainability Conference VIII reception on Thursday, March 7, 2013 (guests must be a registered conference participants).
