2016 Housing Team - Week 8

by Pamela Lim

Final push to the end of the year! We’re so proud of our work for the past two quarters. The educational component of our project is proving to be successful, as we hear of various UCLA offices that are using our Green Office Catalog to purchase through BruinBuy. Some examples are Housing and Hospitality Services, UCLA Libraries, and UCLA Catering. We hit a little road bump a couple weeks ago when we couldn’t get our office supply samples in time for the Earth Day Fair, but we have decided to donate these through Dr. Cully Nordby! This week, we focused on preparing for our final presentation and poster board. We have also been discussing the next steps for our procurement project and next year’s Housing Team. We’re hoping the BruinBuy system can get a reboot with a eco-friendly portal. This is a possible project for another Housing Team; we also considered research on waste management (cross your fingers for compost bins!).

PS The photo shows a team bonding activity we did during weekly team meetings. We each had 1 minute to draw the person sitting to our left. #HousingTeamIsDreamTeam
