Carolyn Hartman has worked diligently to promote environmental education and campus sustainability in numerous leadership capacities throughout her time at UW.

For the past three years, she has represented environmental student groups as an ASUW student senator. Last school year, she impressively leveraged her involvement with both the ASUW Senate and SEED, the HFS-affiliated environmental student group, to pass a resolution in support of increasing composting programs in the residence hall. Additionally, she has participated actively for the past two years as a member of the Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF) committee.

When Carolyn isn’t facilitating sustainability efforts on campus, she’s out enjoying nature as an officer with Northwest Women. This year she created the new position of Director of Sustainability and has integrated both trail stewardship and restoration events into the outdoors club’s event programming.

The Husky Green Awards recognize the top environmental leaders at the University of Washington. Individuals or groups from all UW campuses are nominated by faculty, staff and students. We'll be featuring many of the 2016 nominees on the blog this month. The winners will be announced on April 18, with an award ceremony during the April 22 Earth Day celebrations on Red Square.
