At CU-Boulder, we actively promote environmental sustainability in the state of Colorado and around the world. Through a combination of student activism, academic programming, and faculty service, we reach out to the world in ways that enrich both the Boulder campus and the communities we serve around the globe.
The Environmental Board, a joint board of the CU Student Government, advocates for campus environmental policy and oversees the budget, activities and programs of the nation's largest student-run environmental center. Projects include Sustainable CU funding, campus recycling and zero waste, energy conservation, sustainable transportation, and integrated pest management. The board consists of seven student members, two community members and an unlimited number of ex-officio members.
The Environmental Justice Project at the University of Colorado Boulder was created by the University of Colorado Student Government (CUSG) to address the fact that communities of color and underprivileged populations are often unjustly burdened by environmental degradation and pollution. The project was established in response to CUSG’s desire to help define more comprehensive and effective sustainability implementation plan, plans that can address the social and ecological issues faced by all CU students, faculty, staff, and community members.
