SPARC was launched in January 2014 to promote collaboration among sustainability groups from Philadelphia-area colleges and universities. SPARC seeks to provide a platform for communication and resource-sharing to improve students’ impact on the sustainability of their campuses.
The advisory board will consist of approximately 10 sustainability professionals and alumni of Philadelphia-area universities. Board members will provide important insight as well as connections to the wider Philadelphia community. Members will be in a unique position to influence the sustainability of campuses around Philadelphia along with networking and the potential for recruiting students into their organizations as volunteers or interns.
Advisory Board Members are expected to be interested in working with SPARC for multiple years to provide continuity for a primarily student-focused group where turnover is inevitable every few years. We ask that all applicants be available to meet at 7:30pm on Tuesdays and to please hold that time on their calendars.
