Meet Our Alumni

Since 2019, the Office of Sustainability has annually employed an average of 15-25 student employees, in addition to our full-time staff members. In any given year, we have the bittersweet honor of seeing 5-10+ of our dedicated students graduate from the University of Arizona and move on to their careers after college. Sometimes, we even have to say goodbye to a full-time staff member as they pursue new opportunities that come their way. This page serves to recognize these exemplary employee and staff that have supported the past, present, and future success of the Office in advancing sustainability and climate action across campus and within the Tucson community.

Office of Sustainability staff alumni are recognized with a blue frame around their photograph.

This page was first published in June 2021 and does not reflect the 10 years of alumni that came before this. If you worked for the Office of Sustainability, Compost Cats, Greening the Game, Green Team, and/or the University of Arizona Community and would like to be recognized and/or included in our alumni newsletter, please email sustainability@arizona.edu and let us know - we’d love to recognize you!
