Engagement

The Office of Sustainability engages with students, staff, faculty, and the larger community on a regular basis. If you identify additional opportunities to promote sustainability on campus, and would like to partner, please reach out.

University Sustainability Committee Meetings

The CSUDH University Sustainability Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the President and is charged with cultivating interest, promoting, and supporting efforts to educate the campus community and institutionalizing sustainability at CSUDH. Equally important, it ensures the university’s ongoing prominence as a sustainability leader in higher education locally, regionally, and nationally. (For full charter information on the University Sustainability Committee, please view PM 2021-02 (Revised)).

While voting members are elected by their respective divisions and units per the charter’s guidelines, anyone from the CSUDH community is eligible to participate in the University Sustainability Committee and the various workgroups and sub-committees operating under its umbrella as a non-voting, general member.  The University Sustainability Committee meets monthly during the semester and hosts a public townhall meeting once a year. 

To join the University Sustainability Committee as a general non-voting member and/or its affiliated work groups, and to be invited to monthly meetings, please register here with your preferred contact e-mail address.

To present a topic to the University Sustainability Committee, please e-mail sustainability@csudh.edu to request to be added as an upcoming agenda item at the monthly meetings.
