Sustainability Starts with SU!

A sustainable, vibrant and just planet begins on campus by minimizing the environmental impacts of our operations and cultivating a resilient community through our curricular and co-curricular experiences.

Sustainability isn't a buzz word or catch phrase here—it's our responsibility. From a solar array that provides 30% of the electricity consumed on campus to student-first learning opportunities like our Campus Garden and Beekeeping Club, our commitment to sustainability is strong. 

Through our dedication to pursuing sustainability, we have been awarded a bronze certification by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education’s (AASHE) Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System.
