Supply Chain Management presented with 2015 Sustainability Award

On behalf of Supply Chain Management, Sandy Macasieb and Alex Butler (shown here) accepted a 2015 Sustainability Award from the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Sustainability (CACS).

Supply Chain Management was honored “for integrating environmental sustainability within existing campus operations at UC Berkeley.” The team has been working for several years to provide more tools to the campus to make better decisions about green purchasing. Their efforts have included researching new products, highlighting green products for buyers, and focusing on waste reduction efforts.


In his paper,"Time is Not on Our Side," Vice Chancellor John Wilton examines the current policies shaping Berkeley’s financial outlook and identifies the serious challenges they'll create if we don't act. In part two, Wilton offers real solutions to put Berkeley and the UC system on a sustainable path for the future.

Campus Leaders Share Perspectives with Staff at VCAF Town Hall

Whether you spend your days in spreadsheets or sheetrock, we’re all Berkeley,” said Kim LaPean, Communications Manager for University Health Services, at the opening of the first VCAF Town Hall on Monday, May 11. This theme of togetherness was echoed throughout the event as campus leaders shared their perspectives about current challenges and future directions for the university.

Nearly 400 staff attended the event at Zellerbach Playhouse and hundreds of staff tuned in to watch the event online via livestream.

Vice Chancellor John Wilton led off the event with an overview of Berkeley’s financial status, challenges and future goals. In 2008 Berkeley received $506 million in state funding, said Wilton, but by 2014 that number dropped to $319 million, leading to a need for innovative ways to fund the university’s priorities.  

“We really have to do more in terms of communicating and reaching out to people,” he said, adding that the campus leadership was committed to communicating more effectively with staff through events such as this one, and looking for more opportunities to solicit staff questions and feedback.

Over the summer, I decided to put pen to paper and document why our current financial path is not sustainable. I also wanted to offer solutions to secure the future of this great university.
