Coalition Members

The Student Sustainability Coalition first came together over three years ago to advocate for the hiring of a staff coordinator to support student initiatives. Following the opening of our space in the Erb Memorial Student Union, the Coalition has been hard at work bringing divergent students together to raise awareness and make positive differences. The Coalition has evolved into a tight knot umbrella organization with several tiers. Groups sign onto the Sustainability Charter (read it here!). Signatories then have voting rights through their ambassador, and together they vote for the Board of Directors. Through this networked, lateral leadership structure, students can come together around major issues that impact diverse interests and make a big difference on campus and in our community.
We believe that the future of sustainability lies in community; people coming together honestly and putting their perspectives and passions to their highest use to make our communities and ecosystems thrive.
