Dr. Eric Bauce
Executive and Development Vice-Rector, Université Laval
Sustainability is a way of life at Université Laval, where all faculties, departments, services, students, and employees have joined an all-encompassing initiative started by Éric. Under his leadership, Université Laval has become a model for sustainable development integration, Québec’s first carbon neutral university campus, and Canada’s first university to voluntarily offset its carbon footprint. Over 27,000 students each year choose at least one of 348 (soon to be 500) sustainable development courses on offer. Which may help explain the high level of engagement across Campus, and why various international sustainability award programs have named Laval first in Canada.
