Sustainability Champions in Facilities

Helen Schneider

Helen Schneider, Associate Vice President for Facilities and Campus Services

Helen Schneider joined the Loyola community in 1998, but it was not until the early 2000s that she discovered her interest in sustainability. Helen spearheaded Loyola's first recycling program in 2006 and led the development of the Sustainability Committee. Helen is interested in sustainability because (as an avid hiker) she enjoys the great outdoors and would like to preserve the environment for future generations. Helen serves as chair of the Arboretum Subcommittee.

Joseph Griffin, Director of Facilities Management

Joe Griffin joined the Loyola community in December 1996 as an electrician. For Joe, sustainability means getting the most out of everything that we do, purchase, and maintain here at Loyola. Joe's keen eye for LED retrofit opportunities over the last two decades has helped Loyola save over 218,467 kWh each year. Joe serves as a member of the Energy Subcommittee.
