She is recognized around the world as a leading authority on the environment and the role it plays in cancer and human health.

In 2011, ESF earned a silver rating through STARS (Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System).
The Office of Energy and Sustainability at ESF seeks to perpetuate that mission through national leadership and on-campus initiatives. Colleges nationwide have joined together in addressing the challenges of a changing climate, diminishing oil reserves, vanishing habitat, and declining regional economies. As a signer of the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), and member of the Association for the Advncement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), ESF is a core participant in large-scale cooperative efforts. The sustainability office at ESF has facilitated on-campus efforts through projects such as solar panels, a wind turbine and a biomass combined heat and power plant in the new Gateway Building.
You—students, faculty, staff, alumni, partners and friends—are invited to join in the many sustainability initiatives of ESF's Office of Energy and Sustainability.
