CUSD = Cornell University Sustainable Design. Ever wonder why I sometimes don’t respond to emails for a long time? Or why I can’t release videos every week? CUSD is the reason. It’s my bread and butter at Cornell – far more important to me than any of the classes I’m taking. I’ve talked about it a bunch before. Formerly Cornell’s Solar Decathlon team, I reformed it into a comprehensive sustainability organization about a year and half ago (with the rest of the amazing team leaders). In addition to leading the organization’s efforts to promote social, economic, and energy sustainability at Cornell and globally, I also serve as the team leader of CUSD’s on-campus project, as well as the webmaster. We finally finished re-crafting CUSD’s splash page yesterday, and I wanted to share (Big thanks to everybody who worked on it! – They are credited on the bottom of the site).
