Spring 2020

Though we may all not be physically together on campus this spring quarter, you can still stay connected to the sustainability community at SCU! In addition to selecting a few of our programs to transform to online formats, we will offer additional content and modified resources for you to stay involved and committed to a sustainable SCU and personal lifestyle. Please continue to check this page for updates on our virtual programming this quarter!
