Get Involved

Sustainability is all about engaging one another in an ongoing conversation about how changes in the environment affect our daily lives. Through discourse and collaboration each one of us can make a difference. One by one, decision by decision, we can change the world we live in.

To learn more about how you can make a difference, consider joining one of these campus groups.
