The Associated Students appointed Courtney Silver as the new Commissioner of Sustainability Affairs Oct. 21.

Silver is a biology graduate student and worked as the assistant coordinator for three years at A.S. Sustainability.

Her position was formerly held by Zach Keller, political science and communication studies major. Keller was deemed ineligible to hold the position in October because he had too many class units.

“I feel that I am capable of making progressive and lasting changes on this campus and being a part of GAC gives me the opportunity to do so,” Silver wrote in an email to The Orion.

Jovan Smith, vice president of facilities and services, said there were at least five applicants interviewed and Silver was the most qualified out of all of them.

As the commissioner, Silver will serve as:

  • Vice chair of the Sustainability Program Fund Allocation Committee
  • Chair of the Sustainability Affairs Council
  • Voting member of Government Affairs Council
  • Member of the Campus Conservation Committee
  • Member of the of Campus Sustainability Committee
  • Member of the Transportation Committee
  • Member of the Arboretum Committee.

She will also be responsible for submitting proposals of environmental concerns to the A.S. Government Affairs Council.

“It’s basically submitting sustainability related proposals that I feel will benefit the campus and surrounding environment,” she said. “I am the liaison between students, campus and community.”

The A.S. Board of Directors vote Nov. 4 to approve the appointment.
