In its efforts to continue sustainability and environmental awareness, Notre Dame has created the Office of Sustainability, and had named James M. Mazurek as its first director.
Mazurek, a Notre Dame graduate, will begin at his new post May 1.
The new office, which was created in January, will focus on University building efficiency and carbon strategy, among other environmental issues, said junior Lourdes Long, a representative to the Energy and Environmental Issues Committee.
“[The office was created] to focus on energy and environmental action on campus,” Long said. “It will develop a sustainability strategy for Notre Dame.”
