Sustainability Volunteers

Make a difference, and make friends too.

Volunteer with the Sustainability Council. Join an exciting and experienced team that has been at the heart of campus life for almost ten years. Together, we will engage the university community on issues like climate change, food security, biodiversity and our energy future. It's a great opportunity to contribute to your community, while learning valuable skills and gaining knowledge in sustainability.

Volunteering pays back

  • Gain unique access to professional development training
  • Get discounted registration for events like the Student Sustainability Summit
  • Meet faculty, staff and interns doing innovative on-campus research
  • Expand your network and make lasting friendships
