Reorganization of Office of Sustainability

McMaster’s Office of Sustainability has undergone reorganization and has been developed into two distinct areas: campus operational sustainability initiatives and academic sustainability programs.

Campus operational sustainability initiatives, including those related to energy, green space, transportation, waste, water, and green buildings, will be managed by Shahid Naeem, Energy Management and Sustainability Engineer, Facility Services.

McMaster’s new Academic Sustainability Programs (ASP) Office will be led by Kate Whalen, Senior Manager, Academic Sustainability Programs. The ASP Office currently includes the following initiatives: the Sustainable Future Program; the Sustainability Internship Program; the Graduate/Undergraduate Collaboration in Experiential Learning (GUCEL) Program; and the new, interdisciplinary Minor in Sustainability.

Details about the reorganization can be found in a letter from Roger Couldrey, vice-president administration, and David Wilkinson, Provost and vice-president academic.
