Message from the Sustainability Coordinator...
Greetings! My name is Mandi Green and in December 2009, I eagerly accepted the position of Western Illinois University’s first Sustainability Coordinator. I was born and raised on a small farm in the community and have worked on campus for nearly 8 years. Having the opportunity to be an integral part of the environmental movement is exhilarating!
Progressing as a sustainable campus community requires everyone to become an active participant. I would like to encourage each of you to become familiar with our events, programs and initiatives and lend a hand where you can. More importantly, become a leader and then teach others what you learn. Sustainability isn’t one event or program, it is a lifestyle. Learn to minimize your impact in your personal life, office and in the classroom.
As the campus sustainability coordinator, I am here to help cultivate that sustainable lifestyle with our faculty, staff and students. Providing help with any questions, concerns or ideas you may have is one of my top priorities!
