Guam - University of Guam President Dr. Robert Underwood was the guest speaker at today's Rotary Club meeting.  He came to discuss the university's newly established Center for Island Sustainability and let local business leaders know about opportunities the Center has for the private sector.

"They could do some testing of energy projects," said Underwood.  "They can also help us fund some research projects. There's opportunities there. What we want to do is create a center where there's buy in from all segments of the community."

The center recently concluded its first conference. Attendees from both the public and private sectors attended the two-day event, which focused on sustainable energy and sustainability in relation to the military buildup.
