Several university employees from different offices around campus are voting members on the City of Athens Environment and Sustainability Commission. This commission works on a variety of projects including drafting a sustainability plan for the city.

Legal Counsel for Ohio University asks the Office of Sustainability if our office would like to issue a statement when local, regional, or federal policies or laws are proposed and could potentially impact sustainability on campus.
