The History of the Sustainable Administration Hub

Dr. Fogt came to Ohio University in 2009 after serving as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the National Research Council at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado.

His current research focuses on climate variability and change, particularly in Antarctica, where he has conducted fieldwork on multiple occasions.

In addition to teaching, Dr. Fogt serves as Director of OHIO's Scalia Laboratory for Atmospheric Analysis, which issues Athens forecasts on its website and phone hotline and keeps the community informed of upcoming weather concerns through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Dr. Fogt launched the Climate and Sustainability Ambassadors to train student leaders to advance the reach, mission, and objectives of the Office of Sustainability, while involving additional faculty and staff who teach sustainability-related courses, conduct sustainability research, or have a passion for advancing sustainability across campus and more broadly across southeastern Ohio.

Each year during the fall semester, Climate and Sustainability Ambassadors focus on advancing sustainability and climate literacy and action across OHIO's campuses through targeted outreach and programs. During the spring semester, the Ambassadors shift their focus to the community by extending sustainability and climate literacy into regional primary and secondary schools to provide critical knowledge on climate change and its impact, and share ways in which each of us can help to reduce our carbon footprint.
