ACUPCC Regional Collaborative Symposiums are held twice a year to facilitate dialogue among presidents and chancellors and their sustainability staffs. By focusing on challenges and opportunities in the Southwest, this event can help all institutions in the region learn more about innovative sustainability initiatives happening on other campuses and foster peer networks to share ideas and collaborate on solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, producing sustainability-literate graduates, and engaging effectively with the local community. Arizona State University will collaborate with the ACUPCC to host this event on March 1-2, 2012.
