Cornell University launches Staff Sustainability Champions program

The Employee Assembly and Campus Sustainability Office have teamed up this year to create a new program to recognize staff who are contributing to a more sustainable campus through actions big and small.

December 11, 2017

Staff work hard to make Cornell University a cutting edge sustainable campus. We're launching a new staff recognition program to spotlight the contributions of employees, in every college and unit, through actions big and small.

The Campus Sustainability Office and Employee Assembly haved teamed up after comments from the 2017 Fall President's Address to staff, where an employee asked "How can we better recognize the contributions of staff to create a more sustainable campus?"

Employee Assembly and Campus Sustainability Office staff created the new recognition program as a way to capture and better recognize the hundreds of daily acts, big and small, that staff demonstrate to reduce waste, create a more welcoming environment, save resources, and champion new ideas for sustainability. 

The first staff chosen for the award is Marianne Arcangeline, from the College of Human Ecology. You can read more about her in this week's spotlight, and learn more about the Staff Sustainability Champions program - including how to nominate! - using the links below. Staff chosen for the spotlight will be featured in the Employee Assembly newsletter, Career/Life Digest, and Campus Sustainability Office blog.
