Who We Are

The Environmental Committee relies heavily on both its leadership and members to fulfil its important mission to:

  • Promote environmental protection and sustainable development at the Institute.
  • Raise awareness of environmental and sustainable development issues among students, administration, staff and faculty.
  • Promote healthy, environmentally-friendly and sustainable policies within the Institute.

The nitty-gritty of how we function and what duties we assume can be read in our statutes.

The Committee is comprised of members with a specific function, i.e. the Leadership, which includes the President, the Vice-President, the Treasurer, Social Media and Communications Coordinators, the Events Coordinators and finally Representaitves to the “Target Initiatives”.

Equally important are the members involved in Environmental Committee activities, events and/or issue-based working groups. These include the Coordinators of EC projects and cooperatives like SCOOP, Save the Food and more.
