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.
Bronco Urban Gardens has had to adjust how our garden education looks this spring as we continue to learn online. While the tiny groups of garden explorers are something to be missed, the spirit of shared learning continues in all BUG programming as we partner with the Ignatian Center to support a range of ELSJ experiences.
Resiliency Bags has donated, as of March 13, 2020, over 4,432 lbs. of produce to families and households in need. The content of our bags include Forge-grown produce, pantry items from the Gardner neighborhood corner store, and environmental education kits designed by BUG.
SCU is now one of the few universities that has reached carbon neutrality of energy used for campus operations in 2020.
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. Please stay in touch through our social media accounts.
