We are in the midst of re-defining our Sustainability Committees. We currently have four working groups, each to address: climate neutrality, zero waste, academics, and engagement. 

These working groups are going to lead into a formalized committee structure in the near future. They consist of over 30 students, faculty, and staff from diverse areas of campus.
