Faces of sustainability: Kendra Rogers

Posted by Guest Author on June 28, 2016

Who are you and what do you do on campus?

My name is Kendra Rogers. I am a third-year Forensic Science student specializing in Biology. I worked for the Office of Campus Infrastructure and Sustainability (OCIS) in the summer of 2016. I love to volunteer at the school by being an Orientation leader and a UOIT ambassador.

How did you get started in environmental work, and how long have you been interested in it? 

My interest in environmental work began when I was young. My family would always go camping and fishing. I guess it just stuck with me! I love being outdoors and making the environment look beautiful.

What does sustainability mean to you?

Sustainability is the idea that we can maintain the environment in which we live in, while catering to the needs of our population. Within sustainability the community needs to acknowledge there needs to be a plan to predict our future needs and the environments future needs.

When did you first become interested in sustainability?

Based on my definition of sustainability, I never really thought about how important it was to be sustainable until I began working with OCIS.

What’s your favourite environmental hobby or activity away from work? 


Who are your eco-heroes?

Santa Claus, hands down - because of the the way he does his carbon free delivery each year!

What would you recommend to someone on campus who is interested in sustainability?
