A brief description of the activities and substantive accomplishments of the institution-wide coordinating body or officer during the previous three years:

Since starting this position is March 2018, I’ve been a guest speaker in a number of class tri-campus speaking about Campus Sustainability, introduced a new recycling program for the Hair and Esthetics Programs (Green Circle Salon), and hosted a Roll in Breakfast in coordination with the Commuter Challenge, we participated in Pitch IN (nation wide spring clean up initiative), and the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean initiative in Kingston and Cornwall (both campuses are close to large bodies of water). We've also hosted "Sustainability Days" in partnership with Sustainable Kingston on our Brockville and Cornwall Campuses. The event consist of workshop, guest speaker and give ways to engage students on Sustainability rated issues.

I supervise our Sustainability Marketing Assistant (a part time student position) during the creation marketing and outreach material to be delivered in the Fall and Winter semesters. We create our monthly e-newsletters and other online sustainability marketing materials used throughout the year. I also support our student lead, Green Team, a group student that are our Green Campus Stewarts.

My responsibilities also include, our Tri-Campus Stewardship Ontario data and our O Reg 397 11 Green House Gas Emission data for 2017, and were both submitted prior to their deadlines. Writing the Sustainability Plan and supporting the Facility Management team in the creation of our Conservation and Demand Management Plan is a current project with completion date of early 2019. We are current on track to deliver both plans. Gathering information and working on our application to AASHE has also been a major focus of my position.

Since 2012 the College has held a Associate Director, Capital Planning & Sustainability position however in 2017, our large 'Hello Future" project began and the duties of this person switch to construction management.
