Employees for Sustainability

Open Letter for the Presidential Search Committee

As the Presidential Search Committee considers candidates for the University’s next visionary leader, the Green Reps Working Group urges the Search Committee to select a slate of candidates who consider environmental sustainability to be a top priority, and who will incorporate environmental sustainability as an integral part of the University’s Strategic Plan.

By signing this open letter to the Presidential Search Committee, you join the Green Reps in displaying your support of the movement to prioritize environmental sustainability in the culture of the University of Rochester.


About Green Reps

Green Reps are employees from across the entire University of Rochester who care about workplace sustainability.

From the heart of River Campus to the University’s many satellite offices, Green Reps act as:

  • Advocates—We champion sustainability efforts and promote green initiatives through e-communications, events, and day-to-day colleague interactions.
  • Liaisons—We relay your needs and feedback to the University Council on Sustainability. We can also present and represent your views, concerns, and priorities to University leadership.
  • Teachers—Education and raising awareness are important to the University’s sustainability efforts. We spotlight the many ways you can go green every day at Rochester.

You will receive a regular e-newsletter, The Compost, exclusive to Green Reps, which contains tools, tips, and resources. You can choose to simply receive the information and stay in the loop, share the information within your departments, or take the information to help introduce or improve sustainable practices.

We’ll offer information and suggestions, but you have freedom and flexibility to implement sustainable strategies in a way that works best for you and your colleagues. We also welcome your thoughts, ideas, and input about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to going green at the University of Rochester.
