In 2016, EAF decided to bring its research home. EAF is currently working with the Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition , UChicago’s Office of Sustainability and Center for Leadership and Involvement to improve the environmental performance of the student-run coffee shops on campus. EAF will be evaluating all aspects of operations for Cobb, eX-libris, Harper and Hallowed Grounds cafes, and making recommendations to reduce environmental impact at the cafes and in campus dining overall.
