20 tons of metal; 25 tons of plastics;
9 tons of aluminum;
To the largest post secondary institution in New Mexico

Spring 2008 President Winograd became a charter signatory to the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment.
Recyclemania is a friendly competition and benchmarking tool for college and university recycling programs to promote and assess campus waste reduction activities.

EcoMotion is partnering with CNM to facilitate the completion of CNM’s first STARS report. STARS stands for Sustainability Tracking and Rating System and is a program of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). The STARS report provides colleges and universities a comprehensive framework for documenting and communicating sustainability efforts across four major areas including academics, engagement, operations, planning & administration.

The STARS reporting system will allow CNM a comprehensive way to collect and gather information regarding sustainability in one location for all to view and utilize and will allow us to see areas of opportunities.
The value of STARS and EcoMotion’s proven process for completing the checklist, is that students, staff, faculty and administrators will be able to work together to pinpoint strengths as well as areas for improvement. In late September EcoMotion conducted an initial assessment for CNM by visiting campus and meeting with many stakeholders.

(include assignment examples here?)
Asa Stone, Psychology: PSY2200 Statistical Principles
Analyze recycling data available on the RecycleMania website to determine whether NMSU recycles more than CNM
Meets the following SLO: “Test hypotheses involving one or more treatment conditions by computing the appropriate test statistic and determining the significance of the results.”

Asa Stone, Psychology: PSY2260 Learning and Memory
Help a fellow student to strategize to promote recycling behavior for the Recycle Mania Tournament by applying instrumental conditioning. Our ultimate goal is to increase the amount of recyclables in recycle bins while reducing the amount of recyclables in trashcans.
Meets the following SLO: “Analyze everyday situations in terms of operant conditioning.”

Carson Bennett, English: ENG1119 Technical Communication
Students worked in a group to prepare a presentation on recycling in general and RecycleMania in particular for an assigned audience. Purpose was to both educate the audience about the topic and persuade the audience to take a specific action that would benefit CNM’s standing in the competition.
Meets the following SLOs:
“Determine the purpose and analyze the audience for a variety of work-related communications.”
“Employ appropriate visuals to support and enhance various texts.”
“Demonstrate effective collaboration and oral presentation skills.”
“Write and format professional documents, including digital media messages, summaries, definitions, descriptions, instructions, short reports, and proposals.”

Sustainability Learning Outcomes are being addressed at both the course and program level

Pursuing the idea of having Sustainability Learning Outcomes at the institutional level

We are working on developing a Sustainability Literacy Assessment

These efforts will help to publicize our campus commitment to sustainability
CLL projects leverage campus facilities, construction, renovations, operations, and events as opportunities to teach both sustainability concepts and existing course outcomes.

CLL helps the institution to meet its sustainability goals (dictated by Climate Commitments, Administration, etc.) while also providing students with hands-on, real-world learning opportunities.
