Sustainability Liaison

The faculty, staff, and graduate students who comprise BU’s Sustainability Liaison Program promote campus sustainability through peer-to-peer awareness. The Sustainability Liaisons are a crucial part of our campus outreach program.

What’s Involved?

Liaisons meet regularly with BU Sustainability to discuss potential projects within individual schools, and share challenges, solutions, and successes.


• Participate in at least three of the five activities/meetings offered per semester (lunch provided if scheduled during lunch)
• Promote the Green Office and Green Department Certification Programs
• Raise awareness about events and initiatives
• Track/report of sustainability initiatives at the departmental level
• Educate colleagues regarding best practices
• Disseminate information, such as monthly educational materials


• Help shape sustainability at our institution by promoting the successful implementation of BU’s Climate Action Plan
• Be a leader and role model on campus regarding sustainability initiatives and practices
• Receive exclusive toolkits, as well as monthly training opportunities through Lunch & Learn events or presentations
• Present on behalf of or alongside the BU Sustainability team at local/regional conferences
• Get featured in BU Sustainability outreach materials and newsletters
• Gain access to fun, sustainability-related tours

How do I get involved?
