[Opportunity] Director Sustainability - UBC

Yes. UBC.

UBC has retained Ray & Berndtson, to find a "Director, Sustainability".

Here's the posting:
Located on 400 of the most beautiful hectares of land imaginable, the main campus of The University of British Columbia is stunning. With a population of over 60,000 students, faculty, staff and residents, UBC is the only self-contained city/university in North America and is among the top ten municipalities in the province. In 2005 the university reached out to the Southern BC Interior with the establishment of UBC Okanagan.

UBC is one of 300 leading educational institutions around the world that signed the 1990 Tailories Declaration, an important action plan for incorporating sustainability into higher education. To date, UBC stands out as a leader in putting its commitment into practice. Critical to this success was the creation, in 1998, of the country's first Campus Sustainability Office.

The Office of Sustainability operates within both the academic and operational areas of the campus. It is responsible for sustainability initiatives in the planning, development and operation of the campus lands and faculties and for sustainability initiatives in teaching and research activities. The founding Director of Sustainability has worked with a talented team to make UBC an international leader in the Sustainability movement. The Director's retirement has lead to a search for her successor. The ideal candidate is a recognized leader in sustainability who through his or her career has lead the development of a broad range of programs that contribute to the development of a strong financially, environmentally and socially sustainable organization. The Director will be an inspirational leader who will have the ability to motivate others and affect transformation in a very sophisticated and complex environment.

Explore this opportunity to join a world class leader in sustainability by contacting Stephanie Falls.

UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply; however Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.

The notice ran on the Ray & Berndtson and Business for Social Responsibility sites.

Funny ... they didn't use Canadian Business for Social Responsibility.


I wonder if anyone from the Wreck Beach Preservation Society is applying for the role?
