Central Michigan University has received the 2018 Sustainability Award from the
APPA, previously the Association of Physical Plant Administrators.
“In my profession, this is one of the biggest national awards CMU could win,” said Jay Kahn, CMU’s director of facilities operations. “We will be going to D.C. to pick it up in August. It’s a big deal.”
CMU's sustainability efforts include food recovery, waste reduction, student environmental advocacy and recycling.
The APPA recognizes institutional excellence in sustainability in three categories: public universities, small colleges and universities, and community colleges.
CMU's award will be presented at the
APPA 2018 Annual Conference and Exhibition Aug. 3 in Washington, D.C. APPA also will announce the honor in Facilities Manager magazine.
