  Development & Service. At a national photography conference I went to in Philadelphia, we visited the photo labs at Temple University. They had a system for disposing their exhausted fixer that seemed significantly better than our system of collecting the used fixer in barrels for a radiology company to dispose of, so I investigated it. We implemented the system this year where we pump our exhausted fixer into a filter (super can) that traps the heavy metal and allows the water to go down the drain. The super can only needs to be replaced annually and disposed by Safety Kleen at a cost of $200, which will save the department approximately $1800 a year. 250 gallons of fixer can go through the can before it needs to be replaced which will work with our volume. A sample of the photoprocessing waste was collected and dropped off at a local lab for silver content analysis this February. The results of the sample indicate the silver content is below the EPA threshold of 0.060 mg/L, so we can proceed with the new super can process at this point without any secondary measures. Jennifer Ambrose and Heather Chapman will take another sample this fall and then again next winter, probably in February to determine how effective the can performs over its life.

  Curriculum. Biology 123 GLISTEN service learning project at the West Michigan Land Conservancy's Lamberton Lake Fen Nature Preserve
  Curriculum. Biology 123 GLISTEN service learning project at the West Michigan Land Conservancy's Saul Lake Bog Nature Preserve
  Curriculum. Following participation in the Sustainability-Across-the-Curriculum summer workshop, I integrated sustainability as a key theme into the course material of Biology 123, beginning with assigned readings from Donella Meadow's book, Thinking in Systems. As part of our GLISTEN subgrant, I also incorporated service learning projects into the course in collaboration with the Land Conservancy of West Michigan.
  Curriculum. Two students (Peter Vandenberg and Alexandra Van Milligen) and I worked this summer to develop course materials for Biology 225 and 250, both of which we offered for the first time in AY 2010-2011. With funding through the Great Lakes Innovative Stewardship Through Education Network (GLISTEN, which is funded by NSF and Learn & Serve America), I developed ABSL modules in Biology 123. Working with the Land Conservancy in the fall, students removed buckthorn shrubs from the preserve at Lamberton Lake Fen and collected wildflower seeds from the prairie at Saul Lake Bog. Working with the Grand Rapids Parks Department this spring, students removed garlic mustard at Ken-O-Sha nature preserve. Also in the context of our West Michigan GLISTEN cluster and grant, I served as Calvin's liaison to connect with community partners, GVSU, and Muskegon Community College in developing concerted projects to assess and restore Great Lake ecosystems. Student research projects in Biology 250 are a large part of our effort. Finally, in the context of last summer's Sustainability Across the Curriculum workshop I coordinated the development and implementation of a new sustainability module in Biology 123. Based on Donella Meadow's book, Thinking in Systems, this inaugural unit now presents systems theory in a way that helps students to think more critically about the components (stocks, flows, and feedback loops) and resilience of sustainable biosystems.

  Student Learning. Evaluation of the energy performance of Calvin's LEED-certified Bunker Interpretive Center -- In January I invited Prof. Matt Heun of the Engineering Department to evaluate the energy performance of the Bunker Interpretive Center. In spring 2011 the students of Engineering 382 deployed instruments throughout the facility to determine energy use. This fall the Engineering 333 class is using those data to evaluate how the building's performance compares to and EPA Energy Star standard. The hope is that a) we will have an accurate idea of the factors contributing to the building's energy demands and b) that we will develop ways to make the building efficient enough to receive an Energy Star rating.
  Student Learning. In the summer of 2011 I supervised two summer research students on similar research projects. One conducted a habitat-specific inventory of the small mammal populations of Calvin's Flat Iron Lake Nature Preserve, and the other investigated the cycling of small mammals in an outwash plain prairie on Whidbey Island, WA. Several years ago the Ecosystem Preserve created the student position of "stewardship internships," dealing with a variety of land management issues on Calvin's preserves. The educational goals are to develop practical land management skills based on the theoretical knowledge they are developing in their course work. We have two stewardship interns this fall. One is largely responsible for week-to-week monitoring and care of facilities at Flat Iron Lake and for developing an agenda for upcoming management actions. The second in focussing on optimal means of dealing with problem exotic species on the Ecosystem Preserve. I am presently supervising a biology-psychology double major who is interested in the behavioral adaptations fox squirrels make to the presence of humans. We have chosen as the environment of study cemeteries on an urban to rural gradient in order to simplify the types of interactions between humans and squirrels. Many of the virtues that we try to develop in Calvin students undergird living sustainably on this Earth. While much of sustainability focuses on energy and resource use, nurturing high functioning ecosystems is also key to sustaining biospheric processes. My goal, particularly in the internship program, is to develop skills in these that will allow them to practice the virtues that lead to sustainability.
  Public Service. I continue to serve as Chair of the Board of Trustees and Chief Scientist for the Pacific Rim Institute for Environmental Stewardship or PRI. PRI operates a 175- acre environmental study center on Whidbey Island, Washington. It is dedicated to transformative education that promotes sustainable living.

Yes Development & Service. In terms of sustainability, I have done three things: 1. I have shut off the HVAC unit in my office. I have found that I don't need it, as my office is cared for well enough by air flow from the general office area (unless I keep my door closed for long periods of time, which is very unusual). 2. I have made it a practice to shut off my office lights anytime I am not in my office. 3. I have made it a practice, and encouraged the same of my colleagues, to limit printing jobs - by utilizing more electronic filing and/or by always printing on both sides of page.
Yes Development & Service. We have done a number of sustainability-related initiatives in the Student Development Office. We have committed ourselves to photocopying two-sided, turning off lights when not in our offices and even turning off heat/AC units from our individual offices. We also invited Matt Heun to meet with our staff in December to talk about various ways to conserve energy in our offices.
