Sustainability Project Coordinator

Neill Hall 307

As a Saint Paul native, having grown up not far from campus, Macalester College is a perfect fit.  Kurt was led to Macalester several years after graduating from St. Olaf College.  He now coordinates sustainability initiatives throughout campus on a part-time basis while fulfilling another part-time role in Information Technology Services; having also previously worked in Facilities Services.

He brings great experiences to Macalester including the spearheading of the first federally funded, new construction project in the United States to provide geothermal environmental conditioning and domestic hot water to seniors in an urban affordable-housing setting. This achievement is a reflection of his approach to the sustainability field: leveraging technology – in whatever form – is a key to sustainability success.
