The 2015 Collegiate Sports Sustainability Summit, also known as CS3, will be held June 24–26 at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Come see what Purdue is doing to create a culture of sustainability on their campus. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to colleagues share stories about the challenges they’ve experienced, and will learn about sustainability successes they may be able to adopt into their own campus cultures. Attendees should register by Wednesday, June 3 for best pricing!

CS3 gives participants the opportunity to network, learn, and exchange ideas—with peers from around the country—regarding how athletic and sports programs can join the campus movement to engage students, alumni, and fans in making collegiate sports socially, economically, and environmentally responsible.

The 2015 Collegiate Sport Sustainability Summit Content Committee has poured their heart and soul into this year’s agenda. The committee was guided by last year’s attendee feedback and now each plenary session will be followed by a 30-minute roundtable discussion. Topics will range from sports, recreation, and health to coordinating with athletics—and many more in between!

In addition to the educational sessions, attendees are encouraged to participate in the Informal Pre-Summit Networking Gathering, Game Day Challenge Recognition Ceremony and Evening Reception, and the post-event tour of Purdue University. Prospective attendees should note that extra registration is required for the tour.
