June 2012 Announcement:

After 10 wonderful years with the Campus Consortium for Environmental Excellence (C2E2),Tom Balf our Program Director has decided to move on to an exciting new position in his home town of Gloucester, MA.

The C2E2 Executive Committee has established a careful process to manage the leadership succession this year. A strategic planning meeting was held at Boston College this past winter and a Request for Proposals has been issued to identify a new Program Director.

This is an exciting phase in our evolution as an organization. C2E2 is very well positioned for a leadership change with a steady membership base, solid budget and strong reputation as an innovative organization.

This leadership transition will allow C2E2 to reach its full potential as it moves forward.

We look forward to the next generation of leadership as they build on what we’ve started and take it to a new level. We are hoping to have a new Program Director in place by August. Stay tuned.

The C2E2 has released its 2011 "Campus Water Recycling and Reuse" survey findings. 42% of campuses in survey are capturing and recycling rainwater. Only 12% of campuses are capturing and reusing graywater.
