Elida Erickson, “The Banana Slugs’ Campus Sustainability Plan: Where have we been, what have we learned, and where do we go from here?,” May 12, 2016

Elida Erickson joined the UCSC campus in 2005, and the Sustainability Office in 2011. Over the years, she has collaborated with the local community, students, faculty and staff to support the goal of Zero Waste by 2020, as well as reduce water usage by 25% in response to the statewide drought in 2014-15. She is also a strong advocate, along with the People of Color Sustainability Collective, for promoting the concept of “inclusive sustainability” to challenge the traditional campus environmental movement to be more open to different cultural notions of what it means to care for the environment. Student engagement and empowerment has always been at the core of Elida’s work on campus since 2005, including her prior roles in residential life and programming at Stevenson College and Colleges 9 & 10.
