Sustainability Starts with SU!

A sustainable, vibrant and just planet begins on campus by minimizing the environmental impacts of our operations and cultivating a resilient community through our curricular and co-curricular experiences.

Sustainability isn't a buzz word or catch phrase here—it's our responsibility. From a solar array that provides 30% of the electricity consumed on campus to student-first learning opportunities like our Campus Garden and Beekeeping Club, our commitment to sustainability is strong. 

Students can not only work on sustainability projects but can propose their own and get funding through our Green Fund. Apply for funding for your own sustainability project on campus here.
