Caroline Burkholder

Job Title: 
Sustainability Manager

As Sustainability Manager, Caroline is responsible for developing sustainability programming throughout the university, coordinating outreach and capacity building activities with students, faculty, and staff, providing support for new sustainability initiatives on campus, and assisting in the completion of institution-wide sustainability reporting. 

Prior to joining the Office of Sustainability, Caroline served as the Pennsylvania State Director of Defend Our Future, the campus climate action organizing project of the Environmental Defense Fund. Caroline graduated from Florida State with a B.S. in Sociology and a B.A. in American Studies in 2014 and then set off on a number of tours around the country organizing on local, state, and federal electoral and issue campaigns ranging from health care access to voting rights. When she's not talking about climate change, Caroline is probably talking about the 2020 NBA League Champion Philadelphia 76ers or the most recent episode of Real Housewives.
