Micro-role

noun Compounding
A small function that a person performs to contribute to a larger project
 
What is the university’s role in promoting sustainability, and what is our micro-role in this?
Etymology : Compound of “micro” (Greek mikros, small) and role, the part a person plays in a project. Using “micro” in front of role, which already denotes a small part of something more complex, highlights how small and specific the role in question is.
