Fun Facts from the “DePaul University CarbonFootprint and Sustainability Assessment”! (Prepared byBlue Planet Energy Group—February 26, 2010)

Burned approximately
2,000,000 therms
(20,000,000 cubicfeet) of natural gas in 2009 (equivalent to one ton of coal)

Burned an average of 
195,555,550 therms
between 2001 and2009

Released approximately
10,000 metric tons of CO2
in 2009

Released an average of 
9,688 metric tons of CO2
between2001 and 2009

Consumed nearly
56 million kilowatts of electricity
in 2009(including lighting, air handling, air conditioning, heating,and “various plug loads ranging from sophisticated laboratoryequipment to multiple student uses in dormitories”)

Consumed an average of 
56.11 million kilowatts
between2001 and 2009

Consumed just over 
14,000 gallons
of gasoline in 2009(between Facility Operations and Public Safety)

Released
547
additional
metric tons of CO2
through travelassociated with DePaul athletics (both via land and air— although air travel “generated two to three times more CO2 per  participant-mile than land transportation”)

McGowen II Science Center, with its LEED Gold designation
and energy efcient design, consumes
25%
less electricalenergy and
50%
less natural gas than other DePaul buildings.

Assuming DePaul continues with pre-2001 practices, our carbon footprint will hit
65,000
metric tons of CO2 by 2025.But, if we continue with our post-2001 sustainable policies— and implement the strategies proposed by the task force— we’re expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by
50%
.This would result in a carbon footprint
half the size.
the better the rating, the less DePaulneeds to focus its initiatives in that area.The system itself is called SustainabilityTracking, Assessment and Rating Systemand was developed by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.“I’m an auditor,” said Dhanda. “I giveyou the math.”Before any of the plan falls into place,SITF wants to sit down with DePaul at largeand “hash things out.”“My thing is just to foster a University-wide conversation,” said Montgomery.“We tend to be in silos—Liberal Arts andSciences in a silo, Law in a silo, Commerce,Business. Sustainability can be a magnet that pulls us out of our silos. Who’s doing thingsabout this? Who wants to do things? This isactually a real ground swell—if my inbox isany indication.”While it has nine official members, SITFis the product of all walks of life—from theCollege of Commerce to Facility Operations,from the SGA to public relations.Dr. J. Harry Wray, a political science professor who has also been instrumental ingetting the word out about upcoming EarthWeek activities, sums it up best.“I also happen to be a human being,”he said. “Or, let me be more clear: I havechildren. I think anyone who has childrenshould be interested in the direction thatwe’re heading in.” No one in the task force predicts this will be easy.“It’s hard to find out how many peopleare interested,” said Barbara Willard, anassociate professor of communications anda member of the task force. “Especially ina campus of this size. We’ve already hostedmore meetings than any committee I’ve ever  belonged to and we’ve been talking since…what, spring 2009?”“It’s a pretty intense goal,” saidMontgomery. “I think that reflects my personality. What we’re trying to do ismerge disparate ideas about sustainability— about what sustainability even is. I’m justhoping it doesn’t end up like the health caredebate.”SITF is hoping to begin running open-forum workshops in May. Students withan interest in joining a workgroup—tohelp study sustainability in Curriculum,Operations, Research or (community)Engagement—should attend that section’sorientation (dates pending). In the meantime,task force members encourage students tocontact any of them with names, contact infoand any ideas about where the task force cango from here.Most people don’t think about plastic spoons.Then there are AnthonyAlfano and Maggie Nelson whoare the co-creators and two-headed chair of the StudentGovernment Association (SGA)-driven Environmental ConcernsCommittee (ECC). They have both used their positions in SGAto pursue a different passion— environmental sustainability. AndEarth Week is just the beginning.“Earth Week is kind of our spearhead, the first roundof introducing this idea of sustainability to DePaul,” Nelsonsaid. “Our hope is to start thatconversation between students.There’s really never been this before, these big events reallytargeting sustainability,” she said.“This is a great chance to gettogether people from all over the board and say, ‘Hey, people aretalking
 
about this—you shouldtalk about it too.’”The list of upcoming eventsincludes Monday's Earth Fair (with booths from both localvendors and University groups)to Thursday’s EnvironmentalService Day (cleaning upcommunity parks) to nextMonday’s lecture and studentreception with world-renownedEcologist, David Orr.Environmental programs havealso joined forces with WorldCatholicism Week, hosting panel discussions with titles like“Integrity of Creation” (Friday)and “Charity in Truth and the New Face of Social Progress”
 
(Wednesday).“DePaul is a Vincentianinstitution; it fits into our mission, it should be our calling,”said Dr. Barbara Willard, amember of the SustainabilityInitiatives Task Force (SITF), anorganizer for Earth Week and aCommunications professor.“As a major private university,as one of the largest Catholicinstitutions in the country, as aninternational center in a major urban environment—we seeourselves as an ideal institute for functioning as an agent for realchange,” she said.The preparations for EarthWeek have spanned over a year and include events sponsored bythe ECC; the SITF; the Instituteof Nature and Culture and theCenter for World Catholicism andIntercultural Theology.“It’s the 40th anniversary of Earth Day,” Willard said. “It justseems like a prime time to get itout there, in a number of differentvenues. Make sustainability a part of every day at DePaul— across the curriculum, across thecommunity. What we’re reallyhoping to do is make it a bigger  presence on DePaul than it’s ever  been,” she said.This idea of cross-collegeinterest also strikes a chord with Nelson and Alfano.“Anthony’s a political sciencemajor and I’m communicationsstudies,” Nelson said. “We
 
aren’tscience students, and we can stillmake this happen. Sustainabilityis more than a science thing—it’san ethical, moral, sustainable wayof thinking.”Alfano agreed. “Sustainabilityreaches across all majors, programs, colleges,” he said. “Theinitiatives that the Universityis taking with LEED buildingsand the new master plan—it justshows that what we had 10, 50,100 years ago will not work even50 years from now. It’s realizingthat this one little thing that youdo affects that, which affectsthat, which affects that…it never stops. It just keeps going.”“When you throw a plasticspoon on the ground, it staysthere forever,” Nelson said. “It’srealizing that. It’s thinking aboutsomething that’s bigger thanyourself.”To find out more about EarthWeek events, go to http://las.depaul.edu/env/About/Events.

The DePaulia
. April 19, 2010
Last Monday, members of CollegesAgainst Cancer (CAC) collected donationsand encouraged students to sign up for theupcoming Relay for Life. The theme thisyear is “Decades” and will take place onApril 30 on the track at the Ray Meyer Fitness and Recreation Center.“You will be pressed to find people whodon’t know someone who has sufferedfrom cancer,” said Elyse Siwinski, publicrelations chairman for Relay. “It mayhave been a loved one or maybe just anacquaintance, but either way it is a very pressing issue in our society.”The CAC team gave students theopportunity to create personalizedstickers in remembrance of friends or family members affected by cancer. Thecommemorative labels will be transformedinto a banner that will hang during Relayfor Life.“We raised nearly 60 dollars,” saidSiwinski about their efforts on Monday.“It doesn’t seem like much, but it’svery promising considering most of thedonations were one dollar or less.”Similarly, 76 student-led teams areregistered to participate in Relay and havestarted to raise money.Siwinski is especially enthused to seethe amplified freshman participation,exclaiming it’s the most in her three yearsat DePaul.“Fraternities and sororities are hugeRelay for Life advocates and consistentlyhave strong showings,” said Siwinski.“But, I’ve never seen more freshmensupport than there is this year. So far,several of the top grossing teams arecomprised of freshmen.”Additionally, other Blue Demonorganizations are gearing up for theovernight fundraiser. President of DePaul’sStudent Government Association (SGA)Dillon Goodson emphasizes both the fiscaland communal importance of Relay.“The money that Relay for Lifeand CAC raise cannot be overlooked,”said Goodson. “But, it is also a greatopportunity to get involved and takeinitiative in the Lincoln Park and greater Chicago community.”As a central motivating philosophy, thecommittee hopes the event will generate$84,000 in donations, a $12,000 increasefrom 2009. All proceeds will be donated tothe American Cancer Society.If DePaul Relay meets its goal, the BlueDemons would assume the number 9 sloton the list of top earning universities inthe U.S.But, no matter the region or participants,Relay for Life is more than dollars, centsand bragging rights.Since 1985, Relay for Life has been acelebration of life. The event symbolizesthe hope that individuals lost to cancer willnever be forgotten, that those who facecancer will be supported and that somedaycancer will be eliminated.“Luminaria,” a CAC led remembranceceremony, honors people who have beentouched by cancer and recalls loved oneslost to the disease. During Luminaria, participants walk a lap in silence whilecandles are lit inside bags filled with sand,each one bearing the name of a persontouched by cancer.“Luminaria is by far my favorite part of Relay for Life,” said CAC boardmember Abigail Best. “I always think of my aunt Kirsten Lawler who lost her lifeto cancer a couple years ago. I can’t help but cry during Luminaria; but I’m cryingin remembrance of her, the life she led andher legacy that will always live on. It is avery touching moment.”Best and Siwinski solemnly confirmedthat many of the CAC board members,as well as a handful of participants, knowloved ones who have battled againstcancer.“I lost my grandmother to ovariancancer my freshman year of high school,”Siwinski said. “That was the first time inmy life that I experienced somebody dyingfrom cancer and I cannot even begin toexplain how difficult it was to watch your loved one slowly pass away.” She went onto say, “I felt completely helpless then, andnot a day passes that I don’t think about her or brainstorm ideas to cherish her life. Thisyear’s Relay—like the past two I’ve beeninvolved with—is a time to remember andcelebrate my Grandma’s life.”
