Hi! My name is Celia Sanchez Zelaya (she, her, hers) and I am the AVP of Environmental Justice Affairs. The projects that I am working for this academic year are to collaborate with the Environmental Health Coalition, host the annual Thrifty Thursday and create other events that serve students to become more aware of the intersection between equity and climate. In addition, I serve on the official campus Committee for Sustainability and the Subcommittee on Open Space. My office hours are from 5-6 pm on Tuesday at Starbucks. Hope to see you there!
