UMBC Sustainability appointed to AASHE's Advisory Council

Collaborating to drive sustainability in Higher Ed!

The Advisory Council (AC) is the primary mechanism for members to get involved in AASHE governance. Consisting of leaders from higher education, business, nonprofits and government, the AC provides advice and guidance on high­-level strategy as well as specific programs and services.

The Advisory Council is an advisory body and, often has a significant impact on staff and board decisions. Advisory Council members:
  • Participate in one or more topical subcommittees through which they provide advice in response to questions from AASHE staff.
  • Provide feedback related to the development and implementation of AASHE’s Strategic Plan.
  • Attend occasional (no more than quarterly) phone meetings and the in-­person meeting at AASHE’s annual conference, if available.
  • Contribute to AASHE programs (e.g., by volunteering to review conference presentation proposals, serving as a judge in the awards program, advising on STARS technical development, submitting resources to the Campus Sustainability Hub, participating in conversations on the online community, or serving as a STARS peer reviewer).
  • Promote AASHE to colleagues and connect the organization with others who can assist in advancing AASHE’s mission.
Ryan Kmetz, UMBC's Assistant Director of Sustainability, is representing UMBC on the AC. Please contact Ryan with an questions: rkmetz@umbc.edu
