Sustainability Team

Our students arrive and return this weekend, and the sustainability office will be full once again.  As I said recently at our all-employee convocation, at the campus ambassadors meeting, and RA training, sustainability at Unity College is everyone’s job, it’s everyone’s major.  There’s great sustainability work happening around our campus in and out of the classroom that I have very little to do with.  But I’m also fortunate to have a pretty robust team of sustainability staffers on hand to support  a great portion of the work.  We are:


  • sustainability coordinator
  • recycling/waste technician
  • farm and food projects manager (Americorps*VISTA through Maine Campus Compact)


  • RMI campus sustainability fellow, buildings (half-time contracted through December)
  • garden manager (half-time, through mid-October)
  • sustainable food production assistant (half-time through mid-November)
  • RMI student interns, campus buildings (10 hrs/wk through December)

Student work-study employees (avg. 7 hrs/wk throughout school year):

  • Recycling Crew

    5 recycling crew

  • 2 compost
  • 2 garden
  • 4 office (1 assistant, 1 media/outreach, 2 STARS)

We’ll have all these posts filled in the coming weeks and will introduce members of the team then.
