Office of Environmental Sustainability

The Office of Environmental Sustainability was created in the summer of 2008, after Plymouth State University President Steen became a charter signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment. The primary objective of the office is to help the campus develop a plan to meet the goals of this climate commitment.

Under the direction of Brian Eisenhauer, director of environmental sustainability, the office also works in partnership with the President’s Commission on Environmental Sustainability and the University Environment Committee to advance the University’s goals on sustainability.

The President’s Commission on Environmental Sustainability is comprised of faculty, staff, students and community members who are working to collect the required data, study the possible solutions and provide a recommended plan to the campus and the President.
