The 2018 Washington and Oregon Higher Education Conference (WOHESC) was a great success! The three-day conference was held at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon and drew more than 400 attendees from across the region. More than 100 speakers discussed sustainability efforts, best practices and ways forward. Keynotes, panels discussion and sessions all generated excitement and enthusiasm, and we’re sure everyone went home after hopefully learning something new from their fellow colleagues.

As we near the end of the spring quarter, I wanted to share a recent interview I did for the Washington Higher Education Sustainability Coalition (WAHESC) newsletter. For many, the WAHESC network is a great place to meet other students, faculty and staff working on advancing sustainability in higher ed in our state.
