Event description

Description

The Texas Regional Alliance for Campus Sustainability (TRACS) is a network of faculty members, students and sustainability professionals supporting higher education in Texas by implementing climate change and sustainability solutions across campus operations, academic curriculum and off-campus fields of influence. TRACS facilitates collaboration between higher education institutions through a variety of means including the Annual TRACS Summit. TRACS is supported by volunteer members representing Texas colleges and universities.

Huston-Tillotson is proud to host the 2019 Summit, taking place on our campus in Austin, Texas from February 17-19, 2019. This year’s theme is “Bringing Environmental Justice to Campus.” We invite proposals for presentations and posters that consider campus sustainability topics with an equity and EJ perspective.

The call for proposals is open and can be found here.
