Fletcher Alexander graduated from California State University, Chico in 2010 with a degree in Economics with an option in Environmental Economics and thematic studies in Environmental Issues. He is currently the Campus Sustainability Coordinator at CSU, Chico. He works collaboratively across campus on the development and implementation of sustainability initiatives in support of the campus’ long-term sustainability goals and on further developing the campus’ culture of sustainability. Before returning to the University in Fall 2011 he worked for a year and a half as an Analyst & Planner with the City of Chico on the development of a community-wide 2020 Climate Action Plan.

“My education in economics has been an invaluable tool in the sustainability planning and environmental accounting work I’ve done with the City of Chico and CSU, Chico. In particular, the ability to perform long-range cost-benefit analysis of environmental initiatives is a skill I’ve used time and again on feasibility and prioritization analyses.”
