Joseph Haggerty
Project Lead

My background: I am a third year student studying International Relations and Environmental Policy and Planning with a certificate in Sustainability and a minor in Environmental Science. Outside of the OSE, I am the Committee Chair for Sustainability and LGBTQ+ Constituency Senator for USG, President of Spectrum UI, President of Fair Trade at Iowa, Student Representative for Sustainability Presidential Charter Committee, LGBTQ+ Group Leader for Walk It Out, and Student Representative for the Queer Campus Coalition Board.

Why I'm passionate about sustainability: Capitalism and imperialism have ruined the world as we know it. Thus, it is up to us as global citizens to protect the environment and our peers as best we can.

Contact me about: Sustainability as a General Education Requirement, working with other sustainability organizations, divestment from unsustainable or socially irresponsible organizations, environmentalism as it relates to marginalized communities.
