Sustainability Projects

To make your organization's project a success, it is sometimes necessary to get additional support, whether that means ideas or financial resources. Communicate with the Office of Sustainability about things you would like to do, and we will try to match you with other students and student organizations with whom you can partner.

For small projects, look to members of our community for support. Area businesses are often able to support small events and initiatives.

For larger initiatives work with the Office of Research Services and the Office of Advancement, or contact the Office of Sustainability directly to discuss your project.

Alternative Break Immersions

Campus Ministry offers several Alternative Break Immersions throughout the year that have a sustainability topic. This is a great opportunity for students to give back to communities and learn about how they can lead more sustainable lives. Read more....
