The SCC is a coalition of students, faculty, staff, and community members that promotes environmental sustainability on campus and in the community. The organization started in 2001, with a focus on the green design of the UMF Education Center, which was completed in 2006 with a LEED Silver Certification.
The mission of the SCC has expanded to include public education, collaborations with the community, environmental planning associated with greenhouse gas emissions, improvement of recycling on campus, encouragement of local food, institutional composting, and sustainable transportation. Most projects are student led, and a team of students work with faculty and staff in organizing the SCC’s activities.
The mission of the SCC is to…
1. Reduce the environmental impact of the campus.
2. Educate the campus and the community about environmental sustainability.
3. Collaborate with students, faculty, staff, and the community while working towards common sustainability goals.
SCC meetings are held on Mondays and Fridays from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm in Education Center Room 113.
