University Senate Sustainability Committee
The University Senate Sustainability Committee advises and makes recommendations to the University Senate and appropriate administrators regarding issues of sustainability. The committee provides a central focus for integration of academic programs, facility planning and campus operating interests in sustainability. The committee also recommends and supports efforts to improve environmental stewardship and sustainability in facility planning and operations, as well as supporting sustainability as part of ongoing education, research, operations and outreach programs.
Staff Council Campus Sustainability Committee
The Campus Sustainability Committee works to enhance the quality of life on campus for Georgia State employees and students by focusing on the university’s impact on the local and global environment. The committee promotes sustainable business practices such as water and energy conservation, recycling, energy-efficient transportation, green building and landscape design, and related areas of university operations as appropriate. The committee also contributes to the development and maintenance of campus wide networks of students, faculty and staff focused on resource conservation, sustainable business practices, sustainable procurement policies and related issues.
Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community and meet new people. In some cases, volunteering can be a great way to explore a potential career path or discover a new hobby as well. The Office of Sustainability hosts recurring volunteer days at the Rooftop Gardens at Center Parc Stadium and offers other opportunities on our General Sustainability Page. All of the Office of Sustainability Initiative’s opportunities are listed on PawsForACause where volunteers can log hours.
Office of Sustainability Initiatives – General Volunteering
The Office of Sustainability Initiatives will post volunteering opportunities throughout the year. Some of the biggest events will be Move-In, Campus Race to Zero Waste, Move-Out, and Recycling Makeovers.
Georgia State University Garden Volunteer Team
The GSU Garden Volunteer Team is a group dedicated to maintaining, supplementing and creating gardens and greenspaces within the GSU community. The Team primarily focuses on the Rooftop Gardens at Center Parc Stadium, where they build raised beds, plant edible fruits and vegetables, and collect produce to donate to GSU’s student food accessibility program, Panther’s Pantry. Volunteering takes place every Friday morning.
