Employees (Workplace)

Workplace Sustainability Liaisons transform their workplaces by engaging their colleagues in sustainable behaviors.

This program empowers Santa Clara University employees to implement the University's Strategic Plan and the Sustainability Strategic Plan.

Benefits of being a Workplace Sustainability Liaison:

  • Receive physical and virtual Sustainability SWAG indicating your role
  • Extra support and resources from the Center for Sustainability
  • Opportunities to learn more about sustainability issues, community-based social marketing, behavior change theory, and more
  • Eligibility for the SCU Sustainability Champion award
  • Opportunities to connect and collaborate with others working on sustainability initiatives at SCU
  • Professional development experience in implementing new initiatives and programs in the workplace

Workplace Sustainability Liaison Responsibilities:

  • Attend one 1-hr meeting each month. These meetings may be special events. Meetings are focused on a different topics based on campus-wide initiatives. Liaisons bring questions and ideas for an engaging discussion. Liaisons take away action items meant to be accomplished in one hour or less.
  • Spend 1-hr of paid work time each month on sustainability. This time is spent completing action items from the Liaison meeting (e.g. checking waste signs), developing programs in the workplace, or presenting information to colleagues. This fall, each Liaison will prepare to present to their department on the Sustainability Strategic Plan and activate their department to adopt the Playbooks.
  • Provide feedback to the Center for Sustainability. Liaisons are a channel for two-way communication between campus employees and the Center for Sustainability. Liaisons bring questions, concerns, and ideas to the Center for Sustainability as well as share new information and upcoming events with their peers.
  • Duration: We ask Liaisons to commit to 1 academic year term at a time. Liaisons may continue the following year, and are asked to find a replacement in the event that they are no longer able to participate.

*Employees who want to become an advocate must have supervisor support to spend paid work time on Liaison duties.
