Ohio University hires resource conservation coordinator

ATHENS, Ohio (June 16, 2006) -- Ohio University Facilities and Auxiliaries has hired Sonia Marcus as the first resource conservation coordinator, which builds upon the department's commitment to campus sustainability initiatives and illustrates its support of resource conservation. Ohio University is the first public institution of higher education in the state to create a position of this kind.

In this position, Marcus will be responsible for the outreach, communication and education for topics such as resource conservation, energy efficiency and campus sustainability. She will be involved in a range of university committees and groups, including the Energy and Ecology Committee, Campus Recycling, the Green Network, Sierra Student Coalition, Sustainable Living and the OHIO Ecohouse.

Marcus is the coordinator for two Ohio University energy conservation efforts: OHIO Unplugged, an energy awareness event this October; and the Residence Challenge, a residence hall energy conservation competition.
