Sustainability Council Departmental Liaisons

Liaisons are a first point of contact with their respective departments (or units). The purpose of this role is to improve coordination and planning across campus, helping to build a stronger, more connected social network for sustainability research, teaching, administration, and operations. They work to actively inform their departmental Chairs and colleagues about important sustainability activities, basically helping connect departments with the Sustainability Council and its committees. They also work to inform the Council and its committees about department culture, needs, and opportunities.
