Sustainability Alumni Network

Alumni

 

Are you an OHIO alumni enthusiastic about creating more socially just, ecologically balanced, and prosperous communities? Then the Sustainability Alumni Network is the group for you!

 

A primary goal of the Sustainability Alumni Network is to connect recent graduates with other alums in an effort to encourage sustainability in a diverse set of careers. Through intentional communication with event planning, outreach efforts and participation in graduation fairs, we believe that we will be able to provide a unique service to Ohio University graduates who wish to incorporate sustainability into their lives after their time as a student here.
