Southern is included in The Princeton Review's Guide to 332 Green Colleges for 2014!

The Office of Sustainability at Southern Connecticut State University connects students, faculty, and staff with the information, people, and tools they need to make our campus more sustainable. We are committed to engaging everyone to make healthy and environmentally conscious decisions in all aspects of campus life.

We welcome ideas and participation by the entire campus community and provide a wide range of opportunities to participate including: Campus Conservation Nationals, Recyclemania, the campus community garden, Plant It Forward, Compost Happens!, Green Room Certification, presentations by guest speakers, and much more. The Office of Sustainability also tracks progress toward meeting greenhouse gas and waste reduction goals of the Presidents Climate Commitment.

From building a highly efficient Campus Energy Center, to encouraging students to plant an organic campus vegetable garden, to creating an Environmental Studies minor for any undergraduate major, Southern seeks to develop a more balanced relationship with the environment.  

Please look through our site for the many ways in which you can go green here at Southern, and stay connected by liking us on Facebook!
