UDaily: UD's first sustainability manager is working toward a greener university

Michelle Bennett has logged quite a few miles since her first day on the job as the University of Delaware’s new sustainability manager. Crisscrossing the Newark campus and the state to meet people and tour facilities, she’s been wearing out shoes at a high rate since mid-August. 

“I’ve just generally been trying to wrap my brain around all the ongoing efforts to make UD a more sustainable place,” says Bennett. “I’ve been talking to a lot of people, from students to administrators, listening to their ideas and sharing what I’ve learned so far about our progress towards our sustainability goals.”
