Chief Sustainability Officer Amy Wildermuth has accepted a position as dean at University of Pittsburgh School of Law, beginning in Fall 2018.
“I have been incredibly fortunate to work with an outstanding team of people in the Sustainability Office and terrific partners across the university,” said Wildermuth. “We have achieved amazing things, such as the first of its kind offsite renewable energy purchase to provide 50% of the U’s electricity, the many new sustainability learning outcomes now embedded in our undergraduate curriculum, and our well-known and award-winning community discount programs for solar, electric vehicles and e-bikes. It has been a true honor to be part of these efforts and, given the wide support for sustainability from our many valued partners across the campus, there is no slowing the U’s sustainability train down. We are on a remarkable positive trajectory in all things sustainability, and I know the U will continue to be a place that dreams big and is a model for what is possible for all of us.”
Wildermuth’s tireless leadership has helped to make sustainability an integral part of the ethos of the University of Utah. The Sustainability Office celebrates her exciting next step even as we are sad to see her go.
