The Awards Committee

The Selection Committee for 2007 consists of several members of the EPAC representatives.  In addition, one graduate student and one undergraduate student intern also agreed to participate as student representatives.  By agreeing to serve on the committee, these environmentally dedicated individuals forfeited their right to receive any awards for which they might be nominated.  The University and the Office of Environmental Policy recognizes their importance of their participation, without which the 2007 Awards could not have been successful, and thanks them for their dedication to this process.
