The Office of Sustainability invites all Tufts University staff, faculty, and students to participate in a special contest involving selfies, sustainability, and prizes! Each week on Monday, we’ll post a prompt on Facebook. Post your selfie to our Facebook page, then encourage your friends, family, colleagues, pets, etc. to like your photo.
A new roof-mounted photovoltaic system slated for Tufts’s Medford/Somerville campus will generate 125,000 kWh of renewable power for the school. Plans call for operation early next year, pending installation and permitting.
