Elaine Durr, director of sustainability, has earned the Certified Sustainability Professional designation through the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP-CSP).

The International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) is the world’s leading professional association of sustainability professionals. The ISSP Sustainability Professional Certification is the first of its kind and was developed following internationally recognized International Organization for Standardization (ISO) criteria. Durr is a member of the first cohort to receive the certification. The application process required a demonstration of combined sustainability-related work experience and formal education as well as professional references. Once accepted, she took and passed two exams based on the core competency areas required of a sustainability practitioner to earn the ISSP-CSP designation.

Durr came to Elon in May of 2008 as Elon’s first full-time sustainability professional. She has a bachelor’s degree from Monmouth College in Illinois and a master’s degree from the University of South Carolina, as well as a professional certificate in Campus Sustainability Leadership from the Institute for Global Sustainability at the University of Vermont. She currently serves on the USGBC NC Advisory Council and the AASHE STARS Steering Committee.
