The selection committee will reward the institution with the most innovative outreach efforts to engage its campus and broader community in climate and sustainability solutions. The award will focus on examples of institutions that are prioritizing climate change and sustainability, have implemented trend setting initiatives to take the issue to the next level, and are measurably influencing and mobilizing the community. 

The institution selected will receive the award on Oct. 10, during HACU’s 30th Annual Conference Town Hall meeting in San Antonio, Texas. Additionally, three runner-ups will be recognized for their important climate and sustainability work on campus.
