Casey J. Roe
Casey Roe is a junior majoring in Environmental Studies and Political Science. As Policy Director of American University’s environmental organization, Casey has been involved in campus sustainability since freshman year. Last year, Casey wrote a Clean Transportation Policy that resulted in biodiesel in AU's shuttles and a bikeshare program. This year she wrote a Sustainable Procurement Policy and created an Office Eco-Certification Program at AU to encourage sustainable office behavior. Casey is currently assisting the Sierra Club with their 2008 election endorsements as an intern in the Political Division. This year she also interned with the Environmental Protection Agency and Rainforest Relief. She loves drinking tea, being outdoors, living near the ocean, and people who make her smile!

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
