Addressing opportunities to promote sustainability


As UT Arlington’s Chief Sustainability Officer, I work collaboratively to foster partnerships among academic, research, and operational departments at UT Arlington. Currently serve and represent UTA on several Advisory Boards including the National Academy of Science Board on Higher Education and Workforce Development—Policy and Global Affairs, Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), and the Board of Directors for International Council for Local Environmental Initiative (ICLEI USA).

I have also spearheaded launching a Regional Center of Expertise for Education in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in North Texas, a program of the United Nations University, and the North Texas Food Policy Alliance.
