Trevelyan College
Senior Common Room

Trevelyan College

Welcome to the Trevelyan SCR web site. These pages provide useful information for both current and prospective members of the Senior Common Room.

Dear friends,

Welcome back to College for the start of the new academic year. It is a very important year for Trevelyan because we will be celebrating the College's 50th birthday, throughout 2016. All sorts of events are being planned, and I will let you know about them as they are announced.

Meanwhile, term starts again on Monday 12th October (although our freshers and International students will have arrived the previous week) so our calendar of formals, talks, music and other events begins again. I will be sending out Dates For Your Diary emails as usual, but please also remember to keep an eye on the website for announcements, particularly about shared events between the three common rooms.

We have several new visiting fellows joining us this term, and I hope they all enjoy their stay with us and get into college life and SCR life. As ever, we wecome new members, so if you're an SCR member please introduce your friends and colleagues to Trevs, and if you're not a member yet but are browsing college websites because you're new to Durham, please get in touch with one of the committee members to find out more. We dine together reguarly, not only at formal dinners, but also in a more relaxed way over lunch, and we also have a cosy common room where SCR members can relax, have a coffee, and now we're fully wired, check their email and do a bit of work if they are so inclined! I hope to see many old and new friends in College over the next term,

Best wishes,

Sally (SCR President)

In the past decade, the interest of academics and practitioners in the sustainability of organizations has burgeoned. This talk will give a fresh perspective on voluntary environmental behaviours undertaken by individual employees, situated at various levels in the organisational hierarchy. In order to provide managers with specific recommendations, the cluster analysis method is used to segment employees according to their attitudes and motivations to engage in environmental behaviours. Business, organisation and psychology students interested in environmental sustainability and social responsibility of organisations are especially encouraged to attend.
