In the spotlight
Bob Olson approaches his work as senior director of the Physical Facilities Energy, Engineering and Sustainability Department from a broader perspective than most. His experiences working with small construction companies, large industrial firms and the U.S. departments of Defense and Energy give him the diverse background necessary for such an all-encompassing position. Learn how Olson is working to improve Purdue's sustainability and energy management efforts while supporting its mission of education and research at the Momentum Makers website.
This month's Momentum Makers installment also features Danica Kirkpatrick, engagement program manager in the College of Agriculture, and Mindy Paulet, manager of WorkLife Programs.
