Sustainability Council

The Sustainability Council united faculty from diverse programs across campus “to guide and promote UO sustainability initiatives to achieve national prominence in research, education, service, and campus operations.”
University faculty member and director of UO’s Institute of Ecology and Evolution, Brendan Bohannan, served as the council chair from 2011-13. Under his leadership the council helped share responsibility for the Meyer Fund for a Sustainable Environment, represented UO at the OUS Sustainability Conference and International Sustainable Campus Network Symposium, and identified opportunities for obtaining federal funding to support sustainability research and education at the UO.
