Sustainability Advisory Council (SAC)

The Sustainability Advisory Council (SAC) furthers the University’s sustainability initiatives by advocating campus research, curriculum revisal, environmentally-friendly development, and community outreach. Everyone is welcome to attend SAC meetings and/or join the work of a subcommittee.

 SAC Mission Statement

WCU's SAC provides leadership, support and opportunities to advance sustainability at WCU and in the surrounding community. SAC leads by advising and advocating for a healthy, environmentally sound, socially just, spiritually fulfilling, and economically viable future. SAC supports wide-ranging sustainability initiatives, including the University's Strategic Sustainability Goals as it moves toward campus-wide carbon neutrality articulated in WCU's Climate Action Plan. Further, SAC provides opportunities for students, administration, faculty, staff and the community to develop the knowledge and skills to be environmentally responsible and involved citizens.

You Can Garden!

We have two campus gardens. The North Campus Garden is behind the Schmucker Science Building next to the Planetarium. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the compost bins, pick fresh vegetables,or just sit and watch the birds. The South Campus Garden is brand-new, and the bees just arrived earlier this summer! If you’re interested in volunteering in the gardens,

send an e-mail to the Office of Sustainability.

 

Join a club!

There’s E.A.R.T.H. club for all things related to environmental sustainability and Net Impact club which is concerned with sustainability in business. But the chances are your major’s department club is involved with sustainable activities on campus. And if your major’s club isn’t involved, join them anyway, and start discussing how your major can get involved.
