Description In the spring of 2007, the University President, Ann Weaver Hart, established a Sustainability Task Force (STF), comprised of students, faculty and staff to provide insights, counsel, and advice on current issues regarding environmental responsibility in large, urban universities. As a result of one of the recommendations of the STF's report, an Office of Sustainability was created to support all aspects that contribute to a sustainable environment and to work with STF on strategic planning on environmental issues. The STF was succeeded by the Sustainability Advisory Group established in 2009 to oversee the creation and implementation of the Climate Action Plan.
