Megan Litke has joined the University of Richmond as its new sustainability coordinator.

Litke will oversee continued development and implementation of the university’s Climate Action Plan, which was designed to reduce carbon emissions throughout campus, including transportation, buildings, dining services, water and energy conservation, and recycling.

“Litke joins us at a critical time as we work to finalize the university’s Climate Action Plan to demonstrate our institutional commitment to a sustainable environment.” said Hossein Sadid, vice president of business and finance.

“I am working to ensure that the Climate Action Plan provides a flexible roadmap for implementation over the next several decades.” Litke said.

After obtaining a B.S. in accounting from Tulane and a master’s degree in sustainability and environmental management from Harvard University’s Extension School, Litke worked at Harvard as a financial analyst while furthering Harvard’s sustainability goals within her office. She recently held an internship in sustainability at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.

Richmond was recently named to The Princeton Review’s list of green colleges.
