Weatherhead School at Case Western Reserve Earns Second Place in National Campus Greening Program
The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University pulled ahead of dozens of other competitors to take second place in the Net Impact Green Challenge 2007. Net Impact is the largest M.B.A. student club in the nation.
Sponsored by Seventh Generation and Office Depot, the Net Impact Green Challenge participants are actively involved in one of two Net Impact change programs: Impact at Work for professional members and Campus Greening Initiative for student members.
The student winners are members of business school chapters of Net Impact chosen and recognized for creating positive environmental change at their university or college through the Campus Greening Initiative. The inaugural competition involved student chapters from 14 colleges and universities.
May 2007 graduate Tatsunori Sasaki, a management major, led the effort at the Weatherhead School. He also facilitated the strategic planning process for Case’s Sustainability Initiative. Read more.
