August 14, 2017

Abi Graves’ involvement at Arizona State University changed when she joined the Green Devil Network. The network brings ASU faculty and staff together to develop and lead a sustainable university culture.

“Being part of the Green Devil Network equipped me to change the culture here on campus and in my community,” said Graves, School of Sustainability student engagement coordinator.

Members receive invitations to exclusive behind-the-scenes tours, events and workshops with eco-minded faculty and staff. First year Green Devils network with ASU staff, attend sustainability sessions and complete a toolkit. The toolkit includes instructions on creating a culture of sustainability, waste and carbon reduction and water conservation.

In the second year, Distinguished Green Devils lead a project to improve their area, department and wider ASU community.

To learn more about the network and speak to other Green Devils, attend a recruitment event on the Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic, Tempe and West campuses.

“I joined the Green Devil Network because I am interested in sustainability initiatives and learning about what programs or activities that ASU offers in order to help in the sustainability effort,” said Kristen Lee, Center for Molecular Design and Biometrics project coordinator. “I feel that the benefits of joining is that I am one of the first to know about ASU’s latest sustainability efforts and how I can be more involved.”

Participants can attend monthly workshops on the Tempe campus and quarterly events on other campuses. Speakers from ASU departments highlight sustainability practices and goals at ASU. The network also discusses solutions to workplace sustainability challenges.

Program benefits:

• access to the video-based Seeds of Sustainability training
• learn quick and easy tips to green your office or event
• network with ASU leaders
• strengthen your annual performance evaluation
• receive a free ASU green polo shirt

Join the Green Devil Network by Sept. 30 to be featured attendee at the State of Sustainability at ASU event.
