Campus Energy & Sustainability Podcast: Resilient Campuses, Resilient Communities

April 15, 2020  |  Dave Karlsgodt

The Campus Energy & Sustainability Podcast is hosted by B&D’s Dave Karlsgodt and explores sustainability and higher education through conversations with the experts. Listen to the latest episode here.

Climate change spares no city, town or state from new, and often threatening, environmental challenges. How are campuses responding to natural disaster in ways that keep their students and communities safe? What plans are they making to prepare for an uncertain future?

In this episode, host Dave Karlsgodt talks with Cheri Chastain and Gayle Hutchinson of California State University – Chico and Ben Newton of Central Community College about these questions. You’ll hear their stories about dealing with fires, floods and truck-sized icebergs, and how these events have shaped their campuses as they look ahead to the next “unnatural disaster”.


"From community relations through the heart of construction and planned completion, we have been blessed by just the right counselor who provided exactly the wise counsel we needed at precisely the right time. And we have even had fun in the midst of a very challenging process."

David O. Treadwell, Executive Director
Central Union Mission
