What is a Sustainability Champion?
Sustainability Champions keep their campus departments connected to a broader sustainability community through information sharing, training opportunities and networking with fellow Champions. Each Sustainability Champion should expect to spend 1-2 hours per semester promoting sustainability.
 
 
What is the role of a Sustainability Champions
• Deliver information that comes from the Sustainability Program and affiliated CSUN sources
- Share announcements and social media posts with fellow employees
- Hang posters and flyers for events in the Champion’s building

- Data necessary for annual sustainability assessment and reporting

• Participation in the Sustainable Office Program

• If desired, partner with the Sustainability Program and other units to implement sustainability projects and programs within departments and across the university
  
Who can be a Sustainability Champion?
Sustainability Champions should be employees or student employees of CSUN or its Auxiliaries. One Champion per campus department is ideal, however, larger departments can designate more than one if desired. Colleges may designate a college-wide Champion in addition to those at the department level.
Our Sustainability Champions do not need to have related professional responsibilities (i.e., sustainability-related work in a position description), but should have a strong personal interest in sustainability issues.
 
Why be a Sustainability Champion?
• Be a part of a fun, engaged group within the CSUN community
• Priority notification for sustainability-related funding, projects, and programs
• Share department projects and accomplishments
• Awards and recognition
• Department and Champion name listed on CSUN Sustainability website
• Free lunches twice a year
