Sustainable Office Certification: Annual
Awards Celebration

The Sustainable Office Certification Awards Celebration is an annual event, gathering SOC office staff, and the campus community to network, evaluate the program, and celebrate successes. Office working groups that have completed the certification process during the previous year are presented with a framed certificate, signed by President Shepard and the Dean or Vice President of their division. The campus community is welcome to attend, and soup from local seasonal ingredients is provided. The celebration event is scheduled during Sustainability Week each year.
