Haley Karchmer

B.A. '22


Haley is a third year student at UCLA pursuing a major in Psychology and minors in Digital Humanities and Environmental Systems and Society. She has developed a keen interest in corporate sustainability and is looking forward to working with the Corporate Partners Program to investigate how the new climate of teleworking urges firms to adapt their emissions reporting, and ultimately develop solutions to improve the accuracy of this reporting.

On campus, Haley serves as the Sustainability Chair at Hillel, where she has implemented a composting system, helped improve recycling efforts, and provided sustainability-related programming for students. Haley is also a contributor to the Daily Bruin, serves on the board of Bearing Witness, and interns at a consulting group. Last summer, Haley interned at the Council For Watershed Health where she analyzed social media data on the LA River recreation project and supported education and engagement efforts.

In her free time, Haley enjoys practicing yoga, admiring sunrises and sunsets, and exploring LA.
