Description Our attention to the Climate Commitment is embedded into our formal sustainability governance structure which includes sustainability committees in each of our three governing bodies of our campus community, as well as key administrative positions. Individuals associated with sustainability efforts as well as relevant areas of responsibility are included among these "Climate Commitment Catalysts", which are coordinated through the Center for Sustainability as they bring their expertise and insights to bear on the ACUPCC goal of "carbon neutrality." Project administration reports directly to the Aquinas President Juan Olivarez, Ph.D.
