The Sustainability Task Force was founded in the Spring of 2007 by student Elyse Jergen, who also worked as an intern for The Alliance for Sustainable Communities, Lehigh Valley. The STF was further developed and expanded by student Chiu Cheng, the Fall 2007 intern for The Alliance. In 2008, President Thomforde appointed Frank Kuserk, professor of biological sciences and chair of the environmental studies program, chair of the committee to ensure continuity. The group became the Sustainability Committee in 2009.
