There will be an open public forum tomorrow to meet Ramona Van Riper, a potential replacement for the position of Director of Campus Sustainability Initiatives.

The post is currently filled on an interim basis by Paul Skrade, who filled in after the previous Sustainability Director, Shawn Tubb, abruptly left to take a job in China.

The forum will be held from  4–5 p.m. in the Round Room in CFA. All students interested in sustainability efforts on campus are encouraged to come.

The first 10 minutes will consist of her describing her experience with sustainability and the next hour will be open for student questions.
