Meet the Green Dining Team: Claire

Hi! My name is Claire Crawford and I am a fourth year from Midlothian, VA.

I’m majoring in Psychology with a minor in Anthropology and am passionate about

peer education and sustainability! The organizations I’ve been involved in

throughout college have allowed me to serve as an accessible resource to students

in a variety of settings. As an ADAPT Peer Educator, a ULINK Peer Advisor, and a

volunteer with Madison House, I’ve loved being able to interact with the student

body as an educator and helper while building meaningful relationships and

meeting incredible people.

I am thrilled to be working with UVA Green Dining, as I can now combine my

passion for peer education with my passion for sustainability! Ensuring our planet

can continue to do what it was designed to do (i.e produce fresh air, clean water, and

food) far into the future is near and dear to my heart. I’m most interested in how we

can make small changes that are easy to incorporate into our everyday lifestyles. For

example, keeping reusable bags in our cars, choosing reusable to-go boxes at dining

halls and eating plant-forward diets are all simple acts that combined, can make

differences.

I’m looking forward to helping students become more environmentally

conscious and aware of how much waste we produce and where it all goes. I can’t

wait to begin brainstorming creative ways to make sustainable day-to-day choices! I

had no idea of how much goes on behind the scenes at UVA Dining and am excited to

spread the word and help the University meet its long-term goals of reducing carbon

emissions by 25% by 2025, reducing water waste by 25% by 2035, and reducing

solid waste by 50% by 2035.


Looking forward to meeting you around dining halls!

Claire
