Description In the Summer of 2008, Bob Keasler (Senior Vice President for Internal Operations), Lani Foster (Director of Special Projects), and Allyn Steele (Sustainability Coordinator)--who together form the Office of Sustainability--responded to the PCC charge by inviting 13 members of the Wofford community to develop and steer the implementation of Wofford's sustainability initiatives and climate commitment. At its first meeting in September 2008, Allyn Steele and Lindy Bunch, a student, were elected co-chairs of the committee. Additionally, the committee decided that its principal purpose was to serve as the campus's first Sustainability Committee, which would identify and bear additional responsibilities over time. The committee recognized, however, that its current and more pressing function would be more akin to a task force's, with the express purpose of meeting the goals of the PCC.
