On March 24-25, the inaugural Arizona Higher Education Sustainability Conference — hosted by the University of Arizona brought together Arizona universities, colleges, and community colleges in one place to focus on sustainability issues distinct to Arizona and the Southwest region. AHESC served as a platform to inspire, inform, and create engagement opportunities for students, faculty, staff and administrators working or studying in higher education institutions across Arizona to advance sustainability solutions on our campuses and in our regional community.
AHESC 2014 was a first year event which gave our marketing team the opportunity to create a custom event logo and branding identity. Working with the AHESC Steering Committee, we were able to develop a brand that highlights aspects unique to the southwest region and the University of Arizona.
- The inaugural Arizona Higher Education Sustainability Conference brought together a statewide group of individuals working or studying in higher education institutions that might not have had the opportunity to meet without the conference.
