To promote a culture of sustainable living in an open forum and to advance the practice of resource conservation at FSU and within the campus community which in doing so enhances the university's positive impact upon the local and global environment.”
The FSU Sustainable Campus program seeks to have our campus serve as a living model of sustainability, providing learning experiences that students, faculty, and staff may develop, apply, and practice at FSU and in their extended communities.
What We Do:
In our office, we strive to align our goals and projects with the FSU Strategic Plan. We aim to incorporate sustainable living practices into all FSU activities, collaborating with campus partners to build a University-wide culture of environmental care. In aligning with FSU's sustainability commitments, we are dedicated to:
Climate Action by reducing the campus footprint through energy conservation, sustainable transportation, greenhouse gas reduction, and green building;
Waste Minimization by enhancing reduction, reuse, and recycling efforts;
Resource Stewardship by expanding natural resource conservation on campus, through environmentally friendly land, habitat, and watershed management practices;
Education For Sustainability by increasing outreach to the campus community through curricular and co-curricular activities
In addition to working to align with FSU’s Strategic Plan, we also model many of our efforts and programs after the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are seventeen goals with targets across all three pillars of sustainable development: environmental protection, social equity, and economical feasibility.
