Sustainability Living-Learning

The "Gardenside" program is a sustainability-focused living and learning community. First proposed by a Sustainability intern in 2021, the program was developed into a partnership between the Office of Sustainability and ResLife. Students interested in sustainability live together in Wiecking Hall (next to the Community Garden) and take a hands-on class, focused on campus and personal sustainability.

Green Grant

The Green Grant is a $10,000 competitive grant managed by the Sustainability Commission in collaboration with the Sustainability Office to support students in pursuing sustainable initiatives on campus to improve student life and the environment.
