The University’s Sustainability Co-ordinating Committee (SCC) was established in 2009 and held its first meeting Sept. 25, 2009. Meetings are typically held every two months on the fourth Thursday. The Chair of the SCC is the Tom Saint-Ivany, Associate Vice-President Facilities Management.
Participation in the Committee is open to all entities of the University, with the Committee serving as a forum for the receipt and exchange of sustainability related information, practices, actions, initiatives, education, goods & services, etc. In this manner, participants are able to link-up with one another in mutually supporting adhoc groups to develop grass-roots initiatives or to improve on their sustainable practices.
Since 2009, the SCC has been able to sustain and facilitate engagement and dialogue, often at the ‘middle-management’ level, with those in the Brock University community in regards to enhancing and promoting sustainability at the University.
