The financial crisis that the university finds itself could be seen as an opportunity to look closely at the efficiency of our operations and how to make them more sustainable. We should evaluate our use of human and material resources to see how efficient they are. Perhaps there are ways proximal departments can share staff and equipment. The Office of Sustainability’s offices are in the same corridor as Facilities Information Management’s offices and we’ve started thinking about whether we could share a fax machine. Informally, our staff help each other out but maybe formalizing it would make more sense.
