Open forums to be held for Sustainability Specialist position

Ohio University’s Office of Sustainability has announced that the top three candidates for the newly created Sustainability Specialist position will be invited onto the Athens campus for final interviews Feb. 10-13. ­

The candidates will be interviewing on-campus all day, meeting with a variety of constituents, including the Search Committee, Facilities and Planning staff and student sustainability leaders. ­

“We have set aside an hour for each of the candidate to meet members of the campus community, present on their skills and answer questions,” said Annie Laurie Cadmus, director of Sustainability.­ All OHIO students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to participate in these campus forums which will be held on Feb. 10, 12 and 13 at 1 p.m.-2 p.m. in Baker 231.

The Sustainability Specialist position will double the Office of Sustainability’s current full-time staff and, thus, allow for increased workload of the office.­ Primary responsibilities of this position will include: sustainable building design support; leadership with socially responsible investing implementation; and, Greenhouse Gas reporting.

Copies of each candidate’s resume, the proposed job description and sample interview questions will be made available to interview attendees.­ Attendees do not need to prepare anything for this session.

“The three finalists participating in the interviews have advanced to this stage after two rounds of initial screening, so we are looking to the campus to assist us with this third round,” explained Cadmus.­ “Not only do we feel this is an excellent opportunity for the campus community to weigh in on this important decision, it is also a great professional development opportunity for students looking to learn more about interviewing.”

While everyone will be welcomed at the session, the Office of Sustainability is accepting RSVPs so they may prepare the correct number of handouts.­ RSVPs (or questions) may be submitted to sustainability@ohio.edu.
