Sophie Hill is the 2018-2019 RIC Director of Sustainability.

The application period for Director of Sustainability begins in late February. The president of RIC selects the individuals he or she believes are the most qualified to serve in the cabinet positions, which includes DOS, at the end of April. Since the position of director of sustainability is new as of 2013, the main duty is to promote sustainability and to make the UofA a greener campus.

Some of the things that have been achieved so far in this position are putting more hydration stations in residence halls, creating a sustainability flyer for the residence halls, and partnering with Friday Night Live to have a sustainability FNL. During the spring semester, the director of sustainability is in charge of promoting and encouraging participation in both Recycle Mania and Campus Conservation Nationals.

The term for the new director of sustainability begins at the end of April after selection. The end of the semester is a transition period, as the new director takes the place of the current director. His or her term lasts until April of the next year.
