Enrollment assistance isn’t the only benefit we see to the annual Benefits Fair. For us, it is a special opportunity to recognize our colleagues for their strides in sustainability leadership. This year we asked faculty and staff to identify the ways in which their office or department’s Green Team captain empowers them to lead the sustainability transformation. Among the 72 Green Team captains across campus, the following captains were recognized the most for their efforts:

  • Morey Graham (Advancement – Alumni & Donor Services) – encourages colleagues to engage in specific behaviors that reduce their environmental impact
  • Anna Marie Carr (Advancement – Alumni Engagement) – implements specific campaigns or initiatives in her department/office
  • Qiaona Yu (East Asian Languages & Cultures) – implements specific campaigns or initiatives in her department/office
  • Jason Belo (Human Resources) – encourages colleagues to attend sustainability-focused events on campus
  • Laura Denlinger (Learning Assistance Center & Disability Services) -encourages colleagues to engage in specific behaviors that reduce their environmental impact
  • Leigh Anne Robinson (Office of the Dean of the College) – promotes the sustainability tip of the week
  • Amanda Lanier (Reynolda Gardens) – promotes sustainability volunteer opportunities
  • Vanissa Zwigard (Student Health) – promotes sustainability volunteer opportunities

We also asked faculty and staff to share with us how they hoped to reduce, or already have reduced, their environmental impact. Flip through the gallery above to see some of their pledges. You can also view the full gallery here.
