As Marquette University strives to bring positive change to campus through sustainability efforts, the Alumni Memorial Union also recognizes the opportunity to make an impact on the carbon footprint left behind by guests and employees of the building. Over the last year and a half, the AMU has worked with the University's Sustainability Task Force to identify potential improvements to generate change within the student union.
The AMU has moved forward with several exciting initiatives in the fall of 2009 including:
The Alumni Memorial Union developed its own "Green Team" from a mix of students and staff who work in the building to have ongoing discussions regarding sustainabilty in the AMU. The goals of this group include promoting university-wide sustainable initiatives and informing people about the sustainable choices the departments within the AMU are making.
