Sustainability is her middle name

Lindsey “Sustainability” Cromwell ’05 is making the campus a cleaner place.

She graduated from SCU in 2005 with a degree in biology, and just over a year ago Lindsey Cromwell was back to play a new role: that of the first Sustainability Coordinator on campus. Since February 2006, the Hawaii native has put time into a campus-wide sustainability audit, both looking for where the low-hanging fruit could be found, and to get a sense of where the long-term challenges lie; and she’s focused on education and outreach to the campus community. Among her projects: launching the monthly e-newsletter “Sustainability at SCU”; coordinating the first Campus Sustainability Day, held last October; and, recently, heading up SCU participation in the national RecycleMania competition.
