Do One Thing (DOT)

Do One Thing for SustainabilityInspired by Saatchi & Saatchi S, DOT challenges students, faculty and staff alike at the College of William & Mary to Do One Thing (DOT) for sustainability.  The university's DOT movement began at the Mason School of Business.  Prof. Christopher Adkins, Director of the Undergraduate Business Program, spearheaded the effort. 

Within a semester's time DOT spread campus-wide, making William & Mary the first DOT University.  Now DOT is reaching beyond William & Mary, spreading to business programs and universities around the nation.  Our goal is simple - together our DOTs can spark a sustainability revolution!
