Secure UNBC's Sustainability Manager Position

Maria Mercer has been the Interim Sustainability Manager at UNBC for the past year. In her time here, she has done an incredible job at educating herself on all the different sectors of sustainability around campus and has become an extraordinary liaison to assist anyone in the completion of a project or initiative around campus. In addition, she has initiated a great number of projects herself; including, the 20 days of sustainability where she designed a graphic and wrote a summary of 20 different sustainability initiatives around campus. These connections build important partnerships in our community and have contributed to greater productivity for groups helping aid UNBC in meeting the goals set out in its Green Strategy.
Her term is ending at the end of December and the university still has not given any indication on what will be happening to her position once the term has ended. With all the amazing work that she has done and the talent that she has brought to UNBC, we believe it would be in the best interest to the university to ensure she can continue her efforts here under a renewed contract or full-time position. If she is ready to move on, then proper measures must be taken to find a new sustainability manager as it is an extremely important role at UNBC. There are countless different groups of amazing people around UNBC working hard to make the university and this world more sustainable, therefore having a key person to connect all those people and assist in getting things off the ground is essential for us here at Canada’s Green University.
