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.
