Julian Keniry

Sr Director, Campus and Community Leadership
Headquarters - Reston, VA

Julian Keniry is passionate about realizing the potential of US colleges and universities to model sustainability in their curriculum, management and community relations.  If US colleges and university leaders don’t lead for an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable future, she reasons, who will? 

She co-founded the National Wildlife Federation’s Campus Ecology Program (then Cool it!) in 1989 to further the innovations in higher education necessary to realize this vision. 

In her role at the National Wildlife Federation and as a volunteer serving on boards and advisory councils, Julian has had the opportunity to develop recognized programs and publications and to give talks to college and university audiences all across the US and abroad intended to motivate and inspire towards a new vision of what education is for.
