Briefly Noted

Environmental Literacy Mixer

More than 30 faculty and staff interested in environmental issues, especially the “greening” of the CSU, Chico campus, gathered Sept. 16 in Selvester’s Café-by-the-Creek. James Pushnik, Rawlins Environmental Literacy Chair, and Mark Stemen, Geography and Planning, organized the event. “When David Orr spoke on campus last year, he said, ‘If you really want to make things happen, change who people go to lunch with,’” said Stemen. One of the activities at the mixer was a game that had people identify someone working on an environmental project, someone they didn’t know, and someone they’d like to go to lunch with. Names were drawn and several people received a lunch-for-two gift certificate. The next mixer will be Nov. 18 at 4:30 pm in the Faculty/Staff Dining Room in Selvester’s.
