2011 $25,000 Gift of Inspiration for Education Winner, Brandeis University

Brandeis University is National’s third Gift of Inspiration for Education winner and plans to use the money to boost its Student Sustainability Fund where students propose projects and have already implemented several to green their campus such as, a community garden, a bike loaner program, incorporating building performance dashboards in five residence halls and spearheading the use of new solar-powered street lights at the university’s entrance. Brandeis students learn skills in project management and grant writing while contributing to the college experience, the community and future generations through their sustainable efforts today. All the ideas for green campus projects that utilize the sustainability fund are submitted and executed by the students.

“This gift will enable the Sustainability Fund Committee to implement larger investment projects and allow the students to push the envelope even further in what we can accomplish in greening our campus. This gift will definitely inspire us to do more for each other and the environment,” said Herbie Rosen, student, Brandeis University Student Union President.

“We have a very capable, creative student body. Their innovative thinking towards sustainability has provided meaningful programs and implementations that are making a difference. This $25,000 Gift of Inspiration will only fuel their passion in making Brandeis as sustainable as possible. We truly appreciate this gift from National Office Furniture,” said Janna Cohen-Rosenthal, Sustainability Coordinator, Brandeis University.
