Anthony Cortese, President of Second Nature and Bruce Coull, Director of the South Carolina Sustainable Universities Initiative.  Attendance levels and the enthusiasm of participants at the Conference confirmed organizers’ belief that sustainability had an ardent following within Tennessee higher education institutions.
