About the Office of Sustainability
The Office of Sustainability was established in the Fall of 2014, by Vice President for Administration and Finance James Milroy and Interim President Carol Long. The goals of the Office are to raise awareness for and to bring about sustainable changes on campus. The Office has a staff of paid and volunteer student interns, who head projects as diverse as Black Soldier Fly Decomposition and Tree Mapping. Every department has a tie in to sustainability, making any number of projects possible. The Office also works with the Arboretum Board, GOLD program, CAS, EcoHouse, and many other on campus student groups, creating a collaborative environment for sustainable practices to grow.
Dan DeZarn is the Director of the Office of Sustainability. DeZarn has worked at Geneseo since 2003, where he was first employed as a sculpture professor. Later, he served as Chair of the Art Department. DeZarn has been actively involved in promoting sustainability for much of his career, first in his artwork, with his homestead work and research, and now in his position here at the College. DeZarn also spends a good deal of his time working with grassroots community groups pushing for increased sustainability efforts in our region and beyond.
