The Committee was established in July 1999 by the President, Dr. Roger Downer. The President had been approached by three student members of the UL Environmental Society – Nancy L. Serrano, Margaret Phelan and Julia Frischeisen-Koehler. They had raised with him the possibility of establishing a university wide committee, with a broader remit than the student society could hope to address. The Committee would like to acknowledge the debt owed to these three committed environmentalists. Nancy served as the first secretary on the Committee and continues as an active member today.
