CampusUpdatePUBLISHED BY THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS FOR THE SUNY OSWEGO COMMUNITYVolume 19 Number 10 Feb. 6, 2008 1Inside: SUNY Oswego making large, small efforts to become greener Green discussion Patrick Moore, a co-founder and former director of Greenpeace, discussed sustainability and the role of nuclear energy at Oswegos Focus the Nation symposium and teach-in last week. Afterward, he spoke to Nicolina Trifunovski, a senior global studies and political science major, as Molly McGriff, a senior psychology major and Student Association director of civic engage ment, looks on.Going green Christie Van Patten, a sophomore childhood education major and Auxiliary Serivces student employee, pours coffee into an environmentally friendly cup made of corn in the Campus Center food courts Laker Express Market. The earth-friendly cups are one of many environmental initiatives Oswego has launched in the last several years. For the campus community, meeting the goals of greater sustainability and climate change involves both large institutional actions as well as small, indi vidual decisions. With President Deborah F. Stanley signing the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment last April, the college promised to study its greenhouse gas emissions and pledge steps to move toward carbon neutrality. But that signature represented a large step in getting SUNY Oswego on the path to having an impact on climate change and becoming a green campus, Jerry DeSantis, as sociate vice president for facilities, said as part of a panel presentation during Focus the Nation, a campus teach-in and symposium on climate change last week. The first step has involved measuring the colleges carbon footprint, in terms of direct fuel use (buildings, heating, vehicle use), indirect use through electricity (investigating greener power sources) and campus community members use of fuel (transporta tion habits of faculty, staff, students and vendors). Were looking at this as cars and coal and community, DeSantis said. Were looking at choices individuals make every day to have an impact. The carbon footprint measurement should be com two years. The goal of becoming a zero-emissions campus is a daunting task, DeSantis acknowledged, but he stressed that since Oswego is an educational institu tion, the college has a responsibility to show leader ship in the critical issue of climate change.Goal: Reduce waste Mary DePentu, Oswegos assistant director for operations, said the campus is trying to reduce the amount of trash hitting the waste stream. Recyclable paper, she estimates, is 15 percent of campus waste. In addition to having a recycling room, workers in the residence halls now proactively use recycling carts, going door to door to collect objects that otherwise may end up in the trash. Getting more recycling con tainers out and prominent throughout academic build ings is a continuing effort. And communication is key through a Web site and dialogue. Were encouraging everyone to think proactively, DePentu said. Were asking you to have a discussion with your colleagues, asking: What can we do to help reduce the waste stream at SUNY Oswego? Eric Foertch, director of environmental health and safety, sees a concerted effort to reduce the use of chemicals and other potentially hazardous materials in labs and everyday operations. Better management and use of materials ranging from solvents to pesti cides has reduced the colleges impact on the envi ronment, he said. The issue is we cant keep going on the way we have as a society, said Tom Kubicki of the technology department, who chairs the Climate Academic Steering Committee. He and other professors are active in environmental education and passionate about it. The committee is studying how environmental lessons are presented in different classes and perhaps ways to infuse green lessons throughout the curriculum. The aim is to promote environmental awareness so it exponentially grows when our students leave our campus and enter the general population, he said. Oswegos construction work has been meeting U.S. Green Building Leadership Energy and Environment points of a LEED checklist, the process made us start to think about what it means, said Tom Simmonds, director of facilities design and construction. Future projects such as the science renovations and the on-campus student townhouse village will meet increasingly demanding environmental marks, he added. The new Campus Center and renovated spaces are built with more sustainable materials, features (like natural light and more modern heating systems) de mate-controlled and to foster cultural changes in how users view conservation. The college looks to buy building materials within a 500-mile radius, which reduces transportation fuel use and also supports the regional economy. One facet of that regional economy farmers represents part of the earth-friendly equation in Auxiliary Services efforts, said Craig Traub, director of residential dining services. Dining options emphasize locally grown products that support farmers and the environment, during the growing season and yearround for apples, onions, potatoes and milk. In the dining halls, the use of china, glass and sil verware reduces waste of paper dishes and utensils, chemicals are part of the plans, Traub said. In areas like the Campus Center where this is not practical, Auxiliary Services has environmentally friendly initiatives like cups made from corn. The switch to vegetable oil without trans fat isnt only healthy for consumers, but the longer fryer life reduc es consumption and the college is working with a broker trying to market the spent oil as alternative fuel, Traub said. Tim NekritzNew emergency alert system used SUNY Oswego activated its new emergency alert system Friday as one means of announcing the can cellation of classes. A total of 5,493 students and 304 faculty and staff who had signed up to receive SUNY Oswego emer gency messages through NY-Alert should have re ceived the message by some combination of e-mail, text message and phone call. Students may sign up for NY-Alert or change their contact information and preferred contact medium by logging on to myOswego and accessing NY-Alert under personal information. Faculty and staff can enter their contact information by logging on to the employee portal on SUNYs Web site, www.suny.edu. SUNY Oswego sent e-mail to all members of the campus community last semester advising them of how to sign up. NY-Alert is operated by the State Emergency Manpuses free of charge. More information about emergency procedures and communications at SUNY Oswego is available at www.oswego.edu/emergency.

Vol. 19, No. 10 Feb. 6, 2008 CampusUpdateBook explores in, outs, new wrinkles in interpersonal communication Communicating Kristen Campbell Eichhorn of the communication studies faculty co-authored Interpersonal Communication: Building Rewarding Relationships, a new textbook that aims to offer a more modern, engaging take on the topic. When co-authoring the new book Interpersonal Communication: Building Rewarding Relationships, Kristen Campbell Eichhorn of the communication studies faculty looked to create something more mod Interpersonal communication is a course many students from other majors take, and we wanted a provided depth as well as breadth, she said. For communication majors, this book gives an overview of other courses they might be taking. The project started when Eichhorn, chair of the Eastern Communication Associations Interpersonal Interest Group, received a call from publishers Kendall Hunt, asking her to re-envision the way communica tion textbooks are created. While she ultimately was asked to include plenty of traditional material, Eich horn especially enjoyed the opportunity to roll in ele ments that would help it better connect with students. Writing with her mentor Melissa Wanzer from Canisius College and Candice Thomas Maddox, Eichhorn sought to include three threads popular culture, computer-mediated communication and inter cultural communications throughout the books 14 chapters to provided added currency and continuity. They divided the book into three sections: the basics of interpersonal communication, dynamics of interpersonal communications, and interpersonal communication in different relevant contexts. of interpersonal communication, verbal and nonver bal communication, development of self, and how individuals develop differently the meat and pota toes of many courses. The second section, focusing on relationships, in corporates topics including initiating and sustaining relationships, as well as the dark side of relation ships such as jealousy, deception and obsession and even knowing when to end relationships. The part about sustaining relationships is some thing we really wanted to do a chapter on because we feel like other books gloss over it and we thought its an important thing for our society, said Eichhorn, who joined Oswegos faculty last autumn. such as intercultural communication, interfamily rela tionships and various aspects of organizational com munication, as well as two emerging areas: health communications and online relationships. One of the most talked-about areas is health com munications, especially when I survey my undergraduates, Eichhorn said. The chapter includes sections on death, dying and grieving; communicating with people who have disabilities; and doctor-patient rela tionships. berspace, looks at how the Internet has reshaped communication, through positive means like social networks and relationship building and negatively through online deception, Internet addiction and cy berbullying. The feedback she has received from undergraduates has been encouraging, and Eichhorn notes espe cially the ability of pop-culture examples to convey lessons. They seem to like the examples, she said. Sometimes students understand theoretical concepts better when youre using Rachel and Ross from Friends.
