  • Coordinate with the JHU Office of Sustainability to expand opportunities to engage faculty, staff and students in sustainability efforts at all Johns Hopkins campuses.
  • Coordinate with other Johns Hopkins divisions to expand environment education, student opportunities, and research efforts.
  • Spotlight events and research activities to a broad audience that includes the internal Hopkins communities as well as external groups, such as government agencies and community groups.
