Liaison Network Groups

Sustainability Liaisons are peer educators for sustainability and experts on how sustainability interplays with their respective groups.

"The idea came to me because I save nutrition bar wrappers...at my desk to take over to Malley for recycling. I thought if I'm doing it for myself I could expand and do it for Lucas Hall."

"We include sustainability in our student employee training because sustainability is part of Campus Recreation's vision and values for our program and the student workers help us bring our vision and values into fruition."

Join a Liaison Network Group

The Network is a resource and community that facilitates collaboration for people who are interested in working and living more sustainably in their life on and off campus. Liaisons help the Center for Sustainability achieve University goals and commitments by developing a culture of sustainability, as well as help more campus members practice responsible consumerism, reduce carbon emissions through energy and water reduction, and use the campus as a living lab.
