Sustainability Liaisons


The Sustainability Liaison program was created to promote campus sustainability through peer-to-peer awareness within each of the schools and colleges on the Charles River Campus, and throughout the Boston University Medical Campus. They are made up of faculty and staff.

On the BUMC Sustainability Liaisons are operating within all major administrative departments. Please contact us if you’re interested in becoming a BUMC liaison.

Sustainability Liaisons on the Charles River Campus represent every school and college. They meet quarterly with sustainability@BU to improve communication on campus sustainability issues, discuss potential projects within individual schools, and share challenges, solutions, and successes. Through the partnership between sustainability@BU, Sustainability Liaisons, and Facilities Management & Planning, overnight building lighting has been tremendously reduced.

Additional responsibilities include:

  • Promoting the Green Office and Green Department certification programs
  • Tracking/reporting of sustainability initiatives at the departmental level
  • Educating colleagues regarding best practices
  • Disseminating information, such as monthly action materials
