Chancellor Signs National Pledge

Chancellor Signs National Pledge

Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment on Sept. 12, making the campus a Charter Signatory for the pledge.

The climate commitment agreement is a promise by college and university leaders nationwide to reduce and ultimately neutralize greenhouse gas emissions on their campuses and to provide their graduates the education to help society to do the same.

Sorensen joins at least 375 other campus leaders in becoming a Charter Signatory of the climate commitment document. The request to sign the document was brought by the UW-Stout Student Association and supported by leadership on the chancellor’s advisory council.

"UW-Stout already is the most energy-efficient campus in the UW System," Sorensen said. "Our work on the goals contained in this agreement will build on that accomplishment.
