Sustainability at Utah State

USU Sustainability strives to promote sustainable practices across campus, whether that be through student events, fighting food waste, or sustainablity curriculum. With our goal to become carbon neutral by 2050, we have a lot of work to do! 


What is the Sustainability Council?

The Sustainability Council is a group of individuals, whether they be faculty, staff, or students, who are dedicated to helping Utah State University attain carbon neutrality by 2050. Divided into groups such as Energy, Transportation, Communication, and Academics, these work groups do all they can to make USU a better place. 

What is the Student Sustainability Office?

Found in TSC 302A, the Student Sustainability Office is a hub for student ideas. Students focus their time on making USU more sustainable through reducing food waste, planning educational events, and helping students write Sustainability Grants.

What is the Student Sustainability Corps?

With the help of many groups, clubs, and departments on campus, the Student Sustainability Corps is a student leadership group that seeks to educate, engage, and inspire students about sustainable living and reaching carbon neutrality.



 

 Our Big Goals

After signing the President's Climate Commitment in 2007, USU has made major steps in efficiency. The university is currently seeking to achieve carbon neutraliy through reducing waste, engaging the campus community, and transitioning to low or no carbon energy sources.
