Environmental Council

Purpose or Function:  The Environmental Council is responsible for coordinating institutional stewardship of the environment through developing environmental policy and overseeing the implementation and effectiveness of the university’s environmental management system (EMS). The council serves to review and recommend for available funding "Green Initiative" proposals submitted by members of the campus community based on the project's feasibility, affordability, and potential impact on the environment.

Membership:The council is made up of the Environmental, Health & Safety Director, three (3) faculty members appointed by Faculty Senate, two (2) staff members appointed by Staff Council, and two (2) students appointed by the Student Government Association. Appointed student members serve a one-year term; faculty/staff members serve a two-year renewable term. The Director of Environmental, Health & Safety may appoint members to the council as appropriate. The Environmental, Health & Safety Senior Administrative Assistant serves as the council secretary.

Student members may be re-appointed for a second year after serving an initial one-year term. A student must maintain full-time student status to remain on the council. A vacancy exists when any representative of the council resigns their position on the council or when a faculty or staff representative completes the appointment term or terminates employment with the university.
