2017-2018 Blueprint for a Sustainable Campus

On behalf of the Student Environmental Center (SEC), the Student Environmental Center Blueprint Team is pleased to announce the release of the 2017-2018 Blueprint for a Sustainable Campus. This document serves as a resource guide and a different way of thinking about sustainability around 10 topics ranging from food to water to purchasing. Part of this process involved documenting student’s visions and actions of what they want sustainability to look like on campus and beyond. In addition, this year’s topic descriptions include intersections with environmental justice and other fields. They encourage you to read it and think about how your own personal or organizational missions relate to environmental justice. They've tried to broaden the scope of sustainability to include issues directly affecting students such as food insecurity and housing accessibility. SEC encourages staff, faculty and students to use this year's Blueprint.

They also recommend that student organizers apply for funding through the Campus Sustainability Council next winter (csc.enviroslug.org) for sustainability related projects or events.
