“EcoOps membership grows, projects to start “

EcoOps, a new group invested in UA sustainability opportunities, will be electing representatives soon and starting up projects during the summer.

EcoOps kicked off this semester as one of the new initiatives of the Office of Sustainability, which began in October.

With 49 members, the group has been focusing on faculty but reaches out to alumni, said Richard Mora, EcoOps program manager and graduate assistant in the Office of Sustainability.

The group is also open to graduate and undergraduate students.

The two elected representatives will sit on the UA President’s Advisory Council for Environmental Sustainability.

Mora said he sees the group’s strength as “”having all of these brilliant minds together and all these passionate people.””

“”This is a great opportunity for us to talk to each other,”” Mora said.

Members will be talking during the summer about ways to enhance UA sustainability through projects like creating green labs and green offices.
