Chancellor’s Advisory Committee for Environmental Sustainability (CACES)

UW Bothell’s CACES was established in 2012 as an advisory body to coordinate and guide progress in fulfilling the commitment to environmental sustainability, identified as a priority through the UW Bothell’s strategic planning processes. The committee advises the chancellor and vice chancellors, and reports annually to the campus.

CACES works to promote and facilitate the cooperative efforts of the UW Bothell community — including faculty, students and staff — to educate, develop values, share knowledge, recommend policies and implement practices that are sustainable. CACES is an inter-departmental and interdisciplinary group of staff, faculty and students on campus interested in working together to advance sustainability on campus and beyond.

Student groups and other campus community members are invited to propose sustainability-related ideas, research and initiatives to CACES that they would like to see implemented on campus, as well as attend CACES meetings to get updates on the state of campus sustainability.
