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, campus clean-ups, the Environmental
Conference, Campus Race to Zero Waste, Earth Day, or move-out.
Work for the Office of Sustainability
If you're 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. Head to HandShake to check out current openings and opportunities to work on campus.
Join an environmental student group
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.
Join the Climate Leadership Committee
If you want to get involved in changing policy and creating new initiatives, consider
joining the President's Climate Leadership Committee or attending one of the quarterly
committee meetings. The committee makes recommendations and facilitates the implementation
of sustainability initiatives. Contact our office to learn more about the next meeting.
Initiate Your Own Project
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 the Office of Sustainability to discuss your idea and visit
the SGA's website to learn more about alternative funding.
