ASSISTANT SECRETARY BABAUTA TOURS UOG SUSTAINABILITY MODEL HOME
Anthony M. Babauta, Assistant Secretary for Insular Areas (AS-IN) U.S. Department of the Interior visited the University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability (CIS) Model Home on Tuesday, July 17 to learn more about its energy efficient features and the University’s Green Initiative. The model home is located at House #32 Dean’s Circle at the UOG Campus.
After the tour, Babauta spent time visiting with the Green Interns. “I wish to commend the University of Guam, President Underwood and the faculty and students for being real pioneers and creative thinkers. Going and being “green” is much about developing a mindset and trend others seek to emulate,” Babauta said.
The Center for Island Sustainability Model Home is open to the public and anyone interested may ask for a tour of the house from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday.
