For the seventh consecutive year, NACUBO is proud to highlight campus sustainability and efficiency projects for our annual meeting. Although these projects are usually featured on posters that are displayed for meeting attendees to view and read at their convenience, the NACUBO 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting called for something slightly different.
