Brandeis Sustainability Committee

The Brandeis Sustainability Committee is charged with holding Brandeis accountable for improving our sustainability performance in both education and operations. The committee will provide a place for regular communication with the Brandeis community about sustainability concerns and where, by having the right stakeholders at the table, we will have a process for addressing and resolving issues.  

Committee co-chairs

  • Colleen Hitchcock, Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies
  • Mary Fischer, Manager, Sustainability Programs


Committee members include faculty, staff and students. New members are recruited each year. Membership is open to the entire Brandeis community. 

Subcommittees vary depending on the opportunities presented during the year but may include:

  • Education
  • Facilities
  • Dining
  • Procurement
  • Water conservation and sustainable grounds management
