As part of its annual Earth Day celebrations, Ohio University’s Office of Sustainability announced the 2019 Sustainability Award winners, including Dr. Nancy Manring, Associate Professor of Political Science, who received a Lifetime Sustainability Achievement Award for her contributions to sustainability at OHIO.

In 2007 Manring co-founded the Kanawha Project, a multi-year professional development opportunity designed for faculty to learn how to integrate sustainability and climate change issues into their coursework.

Since its inception, 91 OHIO faculty and 19 undergraduate scholars on the Athens and regional campuses have participated in the program. Manring received the student-selected University Professor Award in 2013.

Manring led the creation of the College of Arts & Sciences’ CAS 1415 Introduction to Sustainability course and serves as its lead instructor. She developed and teaches the Tier III course T3 4850 Sustainability Citizenship. Manring also served as director of the university’s Sustainability Studies theme (2013-19), as Chair of the Ecology and Energy Conservation Committee (2013-18), and as a member of the ad hoc Sustainability Committee which oversaw the reorganization of sustainability at OHIO in the fall of 2018. She currently serves on the newly established Sustainability Committee.
