We proudly congratulate METRANS Student Writer, USC Price School of Public Policy undergraduate Monty Hughes, for being selected to hold the position of Undergraduate Team Lead of the newly formed USC Student Sustainability Committee.  This committee is an advisory body that gives student input and recommendations to the USC Presidential Working Group (PWG) on Sustainable Education, Research, and Operations regarding university-wide sustainability plans, goals, and projects.  The PWG was established by USC President Carol Folt in 2019, and the Student Sustainability Committee is one of six committees which report directly to the PWG.  “We are looking for students who are passionate about sustainability and eager to engage in changemaking through the university,” noted the selection committee.  “We are also looking for applicants who understand the interconnection between sustainability and diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
