So, what can you do? There are many current and upcoming sustainability projects at CSUCI that require a campus-wide commitment in order to accomplish. Many of these projects begin in the Department of Facilities Services (FS). If you would like to participate in innovative projects that will aid CSUCI in spearheading the trail toward social, economic, and environmental sustainability, then we have the resources for you. Take advantage of these opportunities to gain real-world insight and experience in the field of sustainability.

Sustainability Working Group

The Sustainability Working Group (SWG) meets at least once each semester to coordinate initiatives to continue the advancement of sustainability on campus. The SWG consists of students, staff, and faculty members. All meetings are open to the public. The SWG also manages subcommittees to work on specific projects each year. All interested members of the CI community are encouraged to participate in these subcommittees.

Sustainable Clubs & Orgs

There are several student clubs and orgs focused on sustainability topics. If you’re a student looking to get involved, reach out to some of our friends:
