The Office of Sustainability has a full-time staff of five, covering various areas of the sustainability spectrum, from data and numbers, to recycling and composting, to communications and marketing.

In addition to this staff, there are also several dedicated graduate assistants, and a group of ten “Zero Waste” interns dedicated to outreach and helping the University meet its waste goals.

New this year there are also “Eco-Reps,” students representing their residence hall to serve as sustainability communicators for the on-campus student population.

The office is on the first floor of East Hall, which is also where the Food Pantry, Free Store, and Sustainable Bookstore are located. Come by and see us!
