The VOICES of the Staff Environmental Stewardship team will focus on developing and promoting a greener and cleaner environment across the University community. The team will address ways to integrate staff engagement in the development and promotion of environmental stewardship values across the campus in order to manage and preserve our resources in an environmentally sustainable manner for the U-M community and future generations.


To examine the selected topic of Environmental Stewardship by:

  • Listening and learning from staff experiences from multiple venues where the staff perspective will provide insight and feedback in improving the U-M environment for all.
  • Learning about the best current thinking in the area of environmental stewardship and sustainability.
  • Becoming informed and partnering with current U-M initiatives and programs.
  • Coordinating Voices of the Staff environmental stewardship network team activities so as to maximize effort and avoid duplication.
  • Serving as a sounding board for new initiatives or strategies by providing input and feedback on U-M environmental initiatives and programs.
  • Providing advice and input about how best to engage staff members.
  • Finding ways to share what is learned with the wider staff community.
