Summary

The Office of Sustainability works with campus and community partners to enhance a culture of sustainability using a data-driven, yet relationship-based approach that strives to connect students, faculty and staff into a cohesive University-wide network. Their philosophy: to achieve balance between environmental, social and economic sustainability in all decisions.  Wednesday Lunch is a Divinity School tradition started many decades ago.  At noon on Wednesdays when the quarter is in session a delicious vegetarian meal is made in the Swift Hall kitchen by our student chefs and lunch crew.  Once the three-course meal has reached dessert each week there is a talk by a faculty member or student from throughout the University, a community member from the greater Chicago area, or a guest from a wider distance.
