With more than a decade at UCLA, Callahan steps into a new position to further shape environmental solutions

Colleen Callahan has been appointed as co-executive director of the Luskin Center for Innovation. She served as the founding deputy director for 12 years, playing an integral part in building the research center from the ground up. The new role reflects Colleen’s experience, the growing trajectory of the center and its goals for the future

In this expanded position, Callahan brings broad vision and leadership capacities to center-wide planning, development and operations. She plans to amplify the work of the Luskin Center’s 20 faculty affiliates, 12 full-time staff, and more than 25 part-time researchers and consultants – while increasing strategic engagement and partnership initiatives to maximize the Luskin Center’s impact on public policies and other environmental innovations for the health of people and the planet.

“It’s both an exciting and daunting time to step into this role,” said Callahan. “Bold action on the climate crisis is urgently needed. I’m humbled to have this opportunity to expand the center’s collaborations with frontline communities, policymakers and others to help advance solutions.”
