Sustainability Council

Sustainability Council

Visit Group Website

A university-wide council of students, faculty, and staff committed to integrating sustainability into everything we do - from how we manage our facilities, finances and people to what we teach and research. Our vision is to create a university that is itself a living laboratory for sustainability and a campus community that leads by example and educates as much by what we do as by what we say. Our goal is to make decisions which reflect a balanced consideration for environmental, social and economic responsibility and to continually learn as we go. The Council meets monthly, as do our three main Committees: Operations; Education & Research; and Administration/Finance/Outreach. Numerous subcommittees also meet regularly with a focus on specific aspects of sustainability such as food, transportation, waste, trees, etc.
