Michele Hebert assumed responsibilities as Sustainability Coordinator in August 2010. In a unique partnership with the ASUAF/Review of Infrastructure, Sustainability, and Energy (RISE) board, Student Services, and Cooperative Extension Services, this position is jointly funded and leverages the resources and missions of all three organizations. Hebert’s extensive background with the Cooperative Extension Service and sustainability, along with her dynamic and engaging leadership style are a winning combination. Hebert will work with the ASUAF RISE board to facilitate sustainable projects funded by the Student Initiative for Renewable Energy Now (SIREN) fee and Chancellor Rogers. Furthermore, Hebert will facilitate dialogue and campus-wide programs that build upon UAF’s commitment to sustainability. Her experience in extension services, organizing conferences and leading outreach programs, grant and philanthropic activities, and publication record will assure success while building partnerships throughout the Fairbanks community.
Michele is well know in the community of Fairbanks for her extensive media work and as an instructor of the popular Master Gardener Program. She hosted a call in radio program on KUAC for seven years and a weekly Gardening Tip series on KTVF for twelve years. Over 1000 individuals have become trained master gardeners by Michele. For 17 years she was the Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator for UAF. She is looking forward to this new role!
