College Council Includes
Diverse Mix of Founding Members

(ALBANY, NY)--The New York State Association for
Reduction, Reuse and Recycling (NYSAR3) has
announced the initial roster of founding members
of its new College Council, including the College
of Saint Rose, Albany; Hudson Valley Community
College, Troy; Buffalo State College, Buffalo;
Onondaga Community College, Syracuse; Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute, Troy; and SUNY Fredonia.

"We are very pleased with the response we've
gotten from New York colleges and universities to
date," said College Council State Coordinator
John Halenar. "We know there are a number of
other institutions considering becoming members
and going through the approval process on their
campuses. We'd like to add another half dozen or
so founding members before the end of the spring
semester and then build on that foundation going into the fall."

The list of colleges and universities that have
joined the College Council so far represents a
broad spectrum of enrollment numbers, academic
concentrations, and geographic locations.

The College Council was created at the end of
last year to provide New York's diverse
institutions of higher learning with a forum
through which students, environmental staff, and
faculty can share information about common
environmental problems and best practices. The
College Council will also provide college and
university representatives with access to the
expertise and knowledge of the environmental
professionals who make up the regular membership of NYSAR3.

College Council members have already begun to use
the members-only listserve that is the primary
communication tool provided to
participants. They are also receiving an
electronic newsletter with information about
environmental activities and events on other New
York campuses as well as campuses around the
country; job postings; developments in the
environmental field in general; and other relevant news.

Each institutional member of the College Council
receives one regular NYSAR3 membership for a
staff person and one NYSAR3 student membership,
as well as reduced membership fees for all other
students, staff and faculty at the institution.
