Join the Environmental Council

The Middlebury Environmental Council (EC) is looking for staff interested in serving on the Council for the 2014-15 academic year. The EC is a standing committee that develops policy recommendations, initiates projects in partnership with the Office of Sustainability Integration and other departments at the College, manages an environmental grants program, and advises the President on environmental and sustainability related matters.

>> Apply to be on the Environmental Council
Deadline: August 31

About the Environmental Council
The EC is composed of faculty, students and staff and is co-chaired by a faculty member and the Director of the Office of Sustainability Integration. The Council operates through committees. This year we will (tentatively) focus on climate change adaptation (what should the College be doing post carbon neutrality); environmental, social, and governance principles (related to socially responsible investing); and land management.

Meetings are held on Mondays from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. once a month with committee meetings in between as needed.

Being an active member of the EC is a good opportunity to work closely with an engaged group of students, faculty and staff advancing the environmental and sustainability leadership of the College while developing your own leadership skills.

If interested, please submit your application here.  Applications due by August 31. Send any questions to sustainability@middlebury.edu.
