Alethea Cariddi is the Assistant Director of Sustainability at the University of New England, where she is responsible for monitoring and managing greenhouse gas emissions and the university’s Climate Action Plan, the recycling program, the move to a water bottle-less campus, sustainable transportation alternatives and many other environmental initiatives.  Alethea works closely with the Facilities Management team to improve equipment efficiencies, and implement energy savings measures with lighting retrofits and direct digital control upgrades.  She received her Building Operator Certification from Northwest Energy Efficiency Council in May 2012.  Her pragmatism in addressing costs associated with conservation initiatives and finding creative funding and logistical solutions has been an asset in advocating and winning champions for efficiency improvements and emissions reductions. 

Alethea received her Masters of Science in Education from Alfred University in 1998 and currently teaches at the University of New England as an adjunct for the Department of Environmental Science.  She works closely with students in other capacities as well; she manages 10 workstudy students in the Eco-Rep program, developing their peer leadership, event and project management skills. 

Alethea owns a small farm in Gray, Maine, where you could find her milking goats, making cheese and yogurt, beekeeping, raising laying hens and weeding an organic garden.
