Sustainability Champions in Facilities
Helen Schneider

Helen Schneider, Associate Vice President for Facilities and Campus Services

Helen Schneider joined the Loyola community in 1998, but it was not until the early 2000s that she discovered her interest in sustainability. Helen spearheaded Loyola's first recycling program in 2006 and led the development of the Sustainability Committee. Helen is interested in sustainability because (as an avid hiker) she enjoys the great outdoors and would like to preserve the environment for future generations. Helen serves as chair of the Arboretum Subcommittee.
