Founded in 1970 by students, The Environmental Center is the nation’s longest-standing, largest and most accomplished student-led center of its kind—and one of the six original CU student government centers.

The Environmental Center leads locally and globally by providing a variety of direct services and expertise to the campus community and beyond, including zero waste, sustainable transportation, energy and water conservation, climate and social justice, renewable energy programs, sustainability training and educational events. The Environmental Center, recognizing that diversity and broader social justice initiatives are key components of sustainability, strives for diversity, inclusivity and social justice in our staff, all programs, activities and outcomes.
