The Sustainable Facilities Forum was born out of the Facilities Management Sustainability Committee, which is a volunteer-based committee consisting of staff members from all segments of the Facilities Management Unit. The committee is dedicated to supporting a more sustainable built environment through increased information sharing and influencing improved procedures.
The forum began in 2016 and is meant to celebrate and expand how the Facilities Management departments are approaching the design and operations of our campus built environment. Through inspiring guest speakers and engaging break-out sessions, the forum connects members of the Facilities unit, campus community members and higher education colleagues from across the country.
The 2020 forum planning committee members are Jessica Rose, Associate Director, Analytics & Communications; Cathy Brim, Communications Officer; Pat Ficenic, Senior IT Support Professional; Wendy Welker, Building Services Program Coordinator; Alicia Wood, Lab & Chemical Safety Officer; Marlon Ellis, Building Maintenance Manager; Jerry Young, Landscape Construction Project Manager; Emma Brodzik, Recycling Program Coordinator and Sarah Neville, Sustainability Program Manager.
Sustainability Committee and Forum Chairs are Maria Ceballos, Building Information Manager and Malte Weiland, Sr. Sustainability Program Manager.
The 2021 event is currently in the planning stages and information will be released soon.
