Request a Sustainability Class Presentation
Our interns at the Center for the Sustainable Environment (CSE) have developed a brief in-class presentation about sustainability at F&M. The presentation details sustainability initiatives on campus and the role of the Center, student clubs, and other sustainability organizations here. It is a good way to educate F&M students about the school’s commitment to conservation, and how they can get involved in sustainability efforts on campus. Presentations can be tailored to fit your class, and can be as brief as 10 minutes.
If you’re interested in having our CSE interns visit your class, please fill out this brief google form.
