Academic Senate Work Group Seeks Proposals for Sustainability Champion
The Academic Senate's Work Group on Sustainability has issued a call for proposals for the inaugural Campus Sustainability Champion.
According to Lorelei Moosbrugger, assistant professor of political science and chair of the senate’s sustainability work group, the purpose of the Sustainability Champion award is to highlight and support the work of a faculty member whose scholarship demonstrates a commitment to the environment and sustainability.
The annual award will provide funding for graduate and/or undergraduate assistantships and institutional opportunities that will allow the selected champion to build upon his or her area of research, to educate the campus and community about the significance of the work, and to explore its application toward advancing sustainability from the campus to the planet.
Academic Senate faculty and Unit 18 lecturers are eligible to apply. Interested faculty should submit a description of the program they would pursue as Sustainability Champion to Nancy Heaton, Academic Senate Work Group on Sustainability, Academic Senate, Girvetz Hall, MS 3050. Proposals should be received by July 1.
The award is funded by The Green Initiative Fund and the office of the Executive Vice Chancellor.
