Terry Link has been the face of environmental stewardship at Michigan State since September of 2000, when he became director of the newly formed Office of Campus Sustainability.
It’s hard to imagine campus without him, but we’ll have to get used to it; Link is stepping down from his post to become Executive Director of the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
We spoke last week about how the food bank’s reach extends beyond fighting hunger to build a strong and healthy community. He also discussed the past and future of sustainability at MSU.
For now, Link’s old duties will be split up among a handful of people, and it’s not yet clear who will replace him. Whoever steps in to shrink the university’s environmental footprint will have to fill some mighty big shoes.
