Executive Taylor

Director of Environmental Affairs - Pashalle Johnson

The Director of Environmental Affairs assists ASOSU in promoting self-governance in the best interests in the students of Oregon State University, specifically regarding topics in sustainability and environmental health. I advise the executive cabinet on these issues, sit on the Provost’s sustainability council and the Student Sustainability Initiative’s fee board, stay up to date on current environmental research and policy, advocate for positive and real change, and lead the Environmental Affairs task force. This task force consists of various members of the student and faculty body. We, as a team, act to develop awareness of our impact of the world around us, planning activities, projects, lectures, campaigns, movies, debates, etc. We actively solicit student participation in these events, as well as encourage collaboration with/ lend aid to other campus organizations that promote similar values in sustainable practices.

About Me
I am from The Bahamas and came here by way of Portland OR.  I am a senior.  My career goal is to create sustainable food systems while educating communities on how to grow food utilizing sustainable horticultural practices. I joined ASOSU to give back to the university community; I have had such positive interactions that I wanted to simply impact this community in a positive way. In my free time, I hang out with my husband and son; garden incessantly , read and work to become fluent in Spanish.

1. To collaborate with students groups on issues of sustainability and environmental  advocacy
2.To increase the visibility of ASOSU within student body
