Sustainable UFV will be looking for a new Sustainability Coordinator Assistant (SCA) to take over from Travis Gingerich who will be graduating in April. This flexible 12 hr/week student position is an excellent way to get involved in the field of sustainability on an organizational level, which helps to spur long-term and lasting change.
In this position, the SCA works alongside the Chair of the Center for Sustainability and our Energy Manager to create and direct initiatives including:
- Waste Management
- Energy Savings
- Greenhouse Gas Reduction
…while also coordinating events to engage students, staff, and faculty in sustainable practices.
Key initiatives have included:
- Waste Audit
- Sweater Week
- Earth Day activities
- Bike to Work Week
- Sustainable Waste Stations
What better way to find out what the job entails than hearing from Travis himself!
It’s been a fantastic experience that has allowed me to stretch my horizons and make a lasting impact on campus. The experience I have gained in project and program management as well as communications has prepared me for a successful transition into a post-UFV career, like many past SCAs who are now in environmental sustainability related fields. Other benefits include flexible hours and a very supportive team in Facilities that really gives you the opportunity to make it happen. 10/10 would do again. ~ Travis Gingerich
