As you know, over the past year, Creighton has taken great strides in incorporating sustainability into its daily operations. However, there is much more that we can be doing. Therefore, Creighton University’s Sustainability Council invites you to be a part of prioritizing which sustainability concepts and areas of improvement are the most important for our campus. Once this prioritizing is accomplished, the process of improving our campus further and making it even more sustainable becomes much easier.
To this end, Johnson Controls will be at Creighton on October 30 in room 3029 in the Harper Center to present their Sustainability Navigator planning tool. Each session will last approximately 3 hours. This game-board-inspired planning tool helps stakeholders quickly assess and prioritize common organizational needs and improvement practices. It is designed to engage people in a structured, interactive process to quickly assess sustainability-related needs and practices.
This will be your opportunity to make your thoughts and opinions known and help determine the direction Creighton will take. Please plan on attending -- we need your help! While three hours is a significant time commitment, if this is an issue you are passionate about, now is the time to make your voice heard.
The video below (approximately 2 minutes) describes the planning tool. You can also read more on Johnson's website.

On November 21, Mark Gardner from Johnson Controls came to our regular meeting and presented the results from the Navigator sessions. The information from both sessions was aggregated together to present one set of results.
The gap analysis is a tool that helps us compare the difference between where we are now and where we ought to be, according to the participants. Johnson Controls has also benchmarked our results against the other schools that have participated in this program.
Take a look and see what the people at Creighton think about how we're doing in terms of sustainability and where we need to be going.
