Faculty and Staff Opportunities

The UAlbany Green Scene is a coalition of various student organizations, faculty and staff groups that is coordinated by the Office of Sustainability. There are a variety of ways faculty and staff can stay informed and play a role in our efforts.

  • Take the Green Workspace Challenge, a self-reporting framework for faculty and staff to make their workplaces more sustainable while gaining recognition for their progress. The challenge is designed to engage the full spectrum of offices on campus. Click here to see how you can earn a bronze, silver, gold, or green rating!

  • Join the office composting program. The Office of Sustainability offers kitchen-sized compost pails for offices upon request. Learn how you can integrate composting into your daily office operations.

  • Become a Sustainability Coordinator. This program offers university employees the opportunity to work with the Office of Sustainability on campus initiatives. Coordinators meet monthly during the academic year to discuss university-wide sustainability programs and give feedback to the director. If you would like to join the group, please contact the office at [email protected].

  • Be a Sustainability Ambassador and serve in the social diffusion network for campus. The group plays a vital role in disseminating information about sustainability events and initiatives and encouraging participation. If you are interested in becoming an ambassador, please contact the Office of Sustainability at [email protected].
