We’re hiring: Sustainability Coordinator

Marquette University has been around for 134 years, and we expect to be around for many more.

To accomplish this, we need to make sure we’re taking care of our campus, our community and our world.

That’s why we’re hiring for a new Campus Sustainability Coordinator to provide the vision, strategy and focus for advancing our sustainability efforts.

This person’s duties will include energy and water management, waste and recycling strategies, sustainable food operations, alternative transportation planning, LEED and green building standards, conservation awareness and other related measures.

The individual will serve as a point person for all sustainability activities on campus, and will collaborate with students, faculty and staff to continue to enhance our efforts and reputation for sustainability.

On Earth Day, President Lovell signed the St. Francis pledge to care for creation. This new position is one of the efforts to uphold that promise.

In his 2015 encyclical Laudato si’, Pope Francis emphasized the importance of caring for our common home.

“When we speak of the environment,” he said, “what we really mean is a relationship existing between nature and the society which lives in it.”

If you can help us nurture that relationship, learn more and join us.
