Organization

The School of Green Chemistry and Engineering is led by an operating committee consisting of the Director, Associate Director, Dean of the College of Business and Innovation, Dean of the College of Engineering, Dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and Associate Dean of the College of Business and Innovation. An External Advisory Board of academic, industry, government and community leaders provides oversight and direction for the SGCE. In addition, a Program Manager will assist with student recruitment, marketing and advertising, accounting, grant proposal submissions, outreach activities and day to day operations.

The organizational structure is illustrated in the figure below. The SGCE is organized to avoid competition with existing departmental and college structure for resources. To maintain a good working relationship, to garner internal support and to avoid conflict and duplication of effort, the SGCE is organized to add to and strengthen the existing structure, promoting and facilitating mutually beneficial academic programs, interdisciplinary projects and research in areas of green chemistry and green engineering.

SGCE Organizational Structure


The director reports directly to the Dean of the College in which the director holds a tenured faculty appointment. Currently, that is the Dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The director also reports indirectly and works closely with the Dean of the College of Engineering and the Dean of the College of Business and Innovation. The director also works with department chairs regarding pertinent teaching and service assignments of relevance to the SGCE. Associated faculty and staff and their budget lines remain with individual departments, not the SGCE.
