Role and Mission
The Sustainability committee strives to improve our environmental ethic as a campus and to enhance students’ understanding of important issues such as climate change, waste reduction, and habitat loss. Our committee is not only driven by people that have an extensive environmental background, but also by people who truly want to learn about how they can help the planet. This committee operates under the philosophy that what someone wants to accomplish, we will work on. All ideas are accepted and promoted.
Director of Sustainability

Outside of USG, Alyssa is involved with Time for Change, and works in the Office of Energy Management and Sustainability. On campus, she can most likely be found in the Chadwick Arboretum. Her favorite Ohio State tradition is Beat Xichigan Week. Alyssa loves to be out in nature, so when she is not on campus, she is likely hiking or at a park.
