The Office of Sustainability takes an active role in fostering leaders and partnering with students, faculty and staff on sustainability initiatives. We encourage you to get in touch to discuss your ideas and interests.
An hour of your time can go a long way to green the campus. Contact us if you are interested in helping out during orientation, Adopt-a-Campus events, the Environmental Conference, RecycleMania, Earth Day, or move-out.
If your considering a career in the field, the Office of Sustainability offers a limited number of positions during the academic year and summer. Students work on a variety of projects related to campus sustainability and take a leadership role in coordinating volunteers and campus outreach.
Students can make a difference by joining or establishing an environmental student group. To find a student group or learn how to start one, visit Student Activities.
If you want to get involved in changing policy and creating new initiatives, consider joining the Presidents' Climate Commitment Committee or attending one of the committee meetings. The committee makes recommendations and facilitates the implementation of sustainability initiatives.
If you have an idea for a sustainability initiative and the enthusiasm to start a project, you can apply for a grant through the SGA. Students and other community members can apply to the fund to start their own sustainability initiative. Please contact TU's Sustainability Manager to discuss your idea and visit the SGA Civic Engagement Committee for details.
