Assistant DOI Secretary Babauta Tours UOG’s Model Sustainability Home


Guam – Assistant DOI Secretary for Insular Affairs, Tony Babauta, visited the University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability (CIS) Model Home last week 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 on the UOG Campus.

After the tour, Babauta spent time visiting with the UOG 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 from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday, and anyone interested may ask for a tour of the house.  For more information, please contact Elvie Tyler at 735-0219 or 734-0478.
