Jeremy King ’97 developed a passion for sustainability during his tenure with the Peace Corps.

A Newark Advocate article recently profiled Denison University Sustainability Coordinator Jeremy King '97. The article looked at his accomplishments since joining the university in 2009.

King was quoted: “Every day I’m identifying opportunities, building consensus and helping the college make decisions that will allow it to continue to thrive into the future,” he said. “Over the last seven years we’ve transformed sustainability from just being about carbon footprints and environmental issues to being more broad in its approach.”

Among other items, the article noted:

“Denison has been recognized by the New York Times, Princeton Review, Sierra Club and the Ohio EPA for its sustainability efforts.

'At the end of the day,' King said, 'I think we all want to feel like we’re making a difference in the communities in which we live and work. Denison has afforded me the flexibility and opportunity to fully engage in civic and community endeavors.'

“One of those endeavors is the Licking County Solar Cooperative, an organization that helps educate people about solar energy and do-it-yourself solar installations, among other things. King is co-chair with Granville’s Richard Downs.”
