Williams College invites applications for the position of Director for the Zilkha Center for Environmental Initiatives. Reporting to the Provost, the Director serves as a visionary leader and communicator of the College’s sustainability efforts. The Director helps Williams set ambitious sustainability goals and partners with other College leaders to pursue the most effective strategies for monitoring and meeting them. 

The College is in the midst of its first strategic planning exercise, which has elevated sustainability as one of three major initiatives threaded throughout the entire process. The planning process is creating a roadmap for meeting ambitious new goals in emissions and energy; landscaping and building; education and research; food, water, and waste; health, community, and justice; and accountability and transparency. The Director will play a critical role in shaping, implementing, and communicating these strategies in partnership with College leadership and other area directors, including those in Dining, Facilities, and Planning, Design, and Construction. The Director will inform and advise senior staff, the president, and the board of trustees about opportunities, progress, and challenges in both setting and meeting ambitious sustainability goals.
