Chad Carwein – Sustainability Program Specialist

11045396_10102612152866640_6565978270222703333_nChad was raised in Greenfield, which is a small suburb east of Indianapolis, IN.  Growing up, he spent most of his summers working on his grandparents’ farm located in Frankfort, KY.  After high school, Chad received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Spanish Minor from the University of Kentucky in May 2009.  In December 2012, he  earned a Master of Public Affairs (MPA) with a concentration in Sustainability and Sustainable Development as well as a Master of Science in Environmental Science (MSES) with a concentration in Environmental Policy and Natural Resource Management through a unique dual masters degree program at the nationally ranked Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA).

During graduate school, Chad became especially interested in working on campus sustainability programs in order to reduce the environmental impacts of university students, staff, faculty, and operations.  Furthermore, he took great pride in leading by example and sharing his knowledge with others through education and outreach activities because, in his opinion, that is the best way to foster sustainable behavior as well as a long-range vision and culture for sustainability both on and off campus.  Outside of the office, Chad enjoys hiking, camping, playing disc golf, and going to music festivals.
