Sustainability Advisory Board

The Sustainability Advisory Board, joining the other established Advisory Boards of UNH organized around the Colleges and key strategic areas of focus, is comprised of a dedicated group of volunteers – alumni, parents, and friends – who all share a passion for UNH and sustainability. The unique cross-cutting aspect of sustainability defies traditional boundaries or silos and requires bringing together a diversity of expertise across sectors and fields. The board provides critical input and guidance on UNH’s sustainability efforts, particularly as it relates to our bold plans for continued leadership in sustainability in higher education.

It is widely recognized that this decade (2020-2030) is pivotally important in terms of action on the climate crisis, and more broadly, urgency to achieve each of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals which consider all aspects of a sustainable future, including dignity for all people and ecological integrity in all places.

As a public university, we believe we have a unique role (and we would say obligation) to play in advancing sustainability, being a role model for other universities and organizations through our own practices, through the generation of cutting-edge knowledge, by acting as a catalyst and convener, to support the advancement of sustainability in our local and regional communities, and helping cultivate the next generation of bold, courageous and capable sustainability leaders through our educational programs. 

The Sustainability Advisory Board will ensure that the Sustainability Institute and UNH more broadly have the resources to further key sustainability initiatives, achieve goals, and invest in future. As such the board's work supports the Institute and ultimately the university at large, and the broader community.
