We are honored to have as our speaker, Dan Garofalo, Environmental Sustainability Director at the University of Pennsylvania.
A native of Montvale, New Jersey, Dan moved to West Philadelphia in 1985 and joined Penn Facilities and Real Estate Services in 2001 as a planner and architect. He received a bachelor's degree in Architecture from the University of Virginia, a master's degree in Architecture from Penn’s School of Design, and a master’s degree in Government Administration from Penn’s Fels Institute of Government.
Dan served twice as a Peace Corps volunteer, first in Malawi as the architect in charge of design for the capital city of Lilongwe from 1992 to 1994, and later on a three-month assignment in Sri Lanka to assist in disaster recovery after the tsunami in 2005. Dan is a LEED accredited architect and a founding member of the Delaware Valley Green Building Council, where he currently serves as Chair of the Board of Directors. He is also the founder of Community Design Collaborative, Philadelphia’s pro-bono design center.
In April 2008, Dan was named the University’s first Environmental Sustainability Coordinator in response to President Amy Gutmann’s 2007 signing of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment.
