The Sustainability Office is back in action and we are excited to introduce our staff for this upcoming 2016-2017 school year!

2016-2017 STA-ff

Alex Miller is our new Sustainability Program Coordinator.  After graduating from Bemidji State University in 2015 with a degree in Environmental Management, she went on to work at the College of St. Ben’s as their Sustainability Fellow.


In addition to being our Sustainability Program Coordinator, Alex is also working with MPCA (Minnesota Pollution Control Agency) to plan a conference for teaching about adaptability to Climate Change in higher education.  She also works on the steering committee for UMACS, which is the Upper Midwest Association for Campus Sustainability.  Being part of this committee means she spends time helping to plan the conference that happens every other year for faculty, staff, students and anyone else who is interested in sustainability in higher education.

So far, Alex enjoys Northfield’s small town charm and all the biking she sees around town!  Alex is looking forward to attending the AASHE conference in Baltimore in October.  She’s also excited for Climate Action Week and to see everyone come together around a big topic area.  If you see Alex around campus, be sure to say hello!
