Vanderbilt’s Sustainability and Environmental Management Office (SEMO) and the Clean Air Partnership of Middle Tennessee hosted a Clean Air Week scavenger hunt near Vanderbilt’s Central Library on May 1. This and other activities were held to celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week April 29–May 3.

At the events, Vanderbilt employees and students learned about the university’s alternative transportation and commuter choice programs, such as the Ride to Work Program, regional bus service, vanpools, Ride‑Match Program, Music City Star Commuter Rail, Zipcars, biking to work and more.
