Staff Editorial: An opportunity worth seizing

The Hatchet’s editorial board calls on students to participate in GW’s sustainability and innovation projects.

Students often feel that their concerns, complaints or suggestions regarding the University fall on deaf ears. Now, GW actually seems to be listening. GW’s Innovation Task Force features a form on its Web site for submitting ideas, and the Office of Sustainability recently reached out to students for ideas for an event called The GW Greenhouse. Students need to capitalize on such opportunities and share their ideas through these forums, while the Office of Sustainability needs to ensure that the timeframe of accepting ideas is left open long after its featured event has passed.
