Building Maintenance and Operations assistant director Anne-Marie Crossan said that Campus Sustainability Day presented Facilities and Auxiliary Services with a unique opportunity to spread awareness of their efforts. “We’re trying to reduce energy usage.

In addition to a presence at the Green Expo, Facilities and Auxiliary Services also helped kick-off Campus Sustainability Day Wednesday morning, when University architect Peter Krawchyk presented the breakfast keynote address, discussing green initiatives in new buildings and infrastructure around campus.
