Sustainable solutions require an integrative dialogue between economic, environmental, and social issues and this dialogue must encompass all players in this system through a top-down, bottom-up collaboration. The fusion student, faculty, and staff participation in not only waste management issues on campus but all sustainability efforts and environmental issues will allow for the versatility and adaptability of Regis University to address current environmental issues that threaten our global ecosystem through education and action. Sustainability in this sense requires an integration of all departments, curriculums, and disciplines across campus and calls upon a weaving of sustainability into the core of the university and its mission to move into the future as a local and national leader in sustainability and environmental awareness in higher education.
