Sustainability

The SG Sustainability Department, is dedicated to enhance sustainability and work towards the development of a more sustainable culture on NC State’s campus through communication, as well as the creation and maintenance of sustainability initiatives. Specifically, we work with student groups and the Sustainability Office to help them achieve their goals as well as work to improve the sustainability of SG and SG events and initiatives.

Sustainability Suggestion Form

The SG Sustainability Department wants to connect students, student groups, and administrators to accomplish projects. The Sustainability Suggestion form gives students and the NC State community an opportunity to describe an idea that the department or the entire campus could explore.

 

 

Ask Sustainability a Question

In our effort to improve the sustainability culture across campus, we want to give a platform for students and the NC State community to ask questions about sustainability on campus. If we cannot answer your question, we will connect you with someone that can! This gives us the opportunity to understand what students want to learn more about or what initiatives we should be improving on.
