  • Support staff by being a conduit to other CSU sustainability projects and champions, provide educational resources and create collaborations with interns and/or courses

  • Provide co-curricular learning experiences for students through internships, employment, clubs/organizations, service-learning opportunities and events

  • Liaise between the Chancellor’s Office, campus administration, faculty, staff, students, off-campus partners and communities, and the higher education sustainability community on sustainability approaches, opportunities, and potential synergies

  • Serve as a hub for community and regional partners looking to connect with our campus on issues related to sustainability
