A former Pittsburg State professor is taking on a new role as the school’s first special assistant to the President for Sustainability.
Jim Triplett’s new role has him working to facilitate and coordinate sustainability efforts for PSU. Triplett retired from the school’s Biology department in 2014.
Triplett will also work to staff the University Sustainability Committee, and work with it to develop and oversee initiatives on campus. University President Doctor Steve Scott says this will help move the school forward at an accelerated rate. Triplett says this will give him a way to put his expertise and knowledge to work to help improve the campus.
