Who, What, When
Shaping campus sustainability
In her new position—part of a three-year pilot program funded by the Educational Foundation of America—Fuller says she’s already impressed by several Skidmore initiatives, from recycling and high-efficiency lightbulbs to geothermal heating and air conditioning. To help the college evaluate and implement even more green practices, she will serve on the Campus Environment Committee and act as a resource for the student Environmental Action Club; she will also help ES faculty integrate sustainability issues more thoroughly into the curriculum and expand opportunities for internships. She reports to two vice presidents: Mike West in finance and administration (including facilities services) and Susan Kress in academic affairs.
After attending an EAC meeting, Fuller says, “I was blown away by the number of students attending. They are concerned about environmental issues and are looking for ways to make more informed choices.” Her aim is to spread environmental awareness throughout Skidmore. —SR
