These committees are primarily charged with working towards the campus’s 2030 Strategic Goal 6.5: Champlain will model its commitment to sustainability through efficient facilities and operations management and will make progress toward carbon neutrality. Committee members will reach out to collaborating departments when needed. Key Staff/College Personnel will be asked to participate with a committee that requires their expertise on an as-needed basis.

All committees are charged with exploring how to better incorporate aspects of diversity and inclusion into their committee’s content area. For example, the following questions might be asked: Who does this work effect/impact? Is any particular group of people impacted more or less? How can we better diversify the stakeholders involved? Are all members of the Champlain community included and do they feel comfortable with this work?
