During Cornell's Trustee Council Annual Meeting, on October 26, ACSF director Frank DiSalvo headed a panel of alumni, faculty, staff, and students who discussed “Cornell and Sustainability: Two Views, Inside and Out.” Later that afternoon, alumni mingled with researchers at the Atkinson Center’s fourth annual poster session.

Goldman ’87 (president and chief financial officer of GreatPoint Energy), Jeff Tester (CHEME), Kimberly A. Wagner ’85 (senior partner and managing director of the Boston Consulting Group), and Roseanne C. Schuster (NS PhD student).

After the panel, 15 ACSF-funded research groups provided 50-second “poster pitches” to encourage judges to visit and select their posters in the sustainability poster competition. The following posters were selected:
