Sustainability at SCU

The Center for Sustainability empowers SCU students, faculty, and staff to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world.

We host events and programs, implement initiatives, provide strategic consultation, and share stories that help the University achieve climate neutrality, practice mindful consumption, develop a culture of sustainability and use the campus as a living laboratory.


Racial Justice Now

SCU's Environmental Justice and the Common Good Initiative shares resources to help us learn about major contributions that African-American communities have made to the environmental and climate action movements as well as suggestions to support and participate in racial justice organizing.

Check out the goals and objectives laid out by many people across campus! We have developed a roadmap of strategies that outlines how we will achieve SCU's sustainability commitments.

Here's the Plan

Alert icon The Forge Garden is closed until further notice. Due to COVID-19, The Forge Garden is closed to the public. All produce is being donated to families in need, as well as to Bronco Pantry and HomeSafe women's shelter. We hope to open our doors to the community once it is safe to do so.
