Description:

Southern Oregon University is committed to sustainable practices, environmental stewardship, and research that advances our understanding of local, regional, and global environmental issues. To assist SOU in remaining at the forefront of sustainability and to better coordinate and chronicle the many environmental enhancement activities in our region and on campus, President Mary Cullinan established the SOU Sustainability Council in April of 2007.

A Quote from the President's memo establishing the Council states:

"I am pleased to appoint you to the new SOU Sustainability Council for 2007-08. This appointment is effective March 12, 2007, through June 2008. The Sustainability Council will be a University-wide group appointed to (1) advise me and the Executive Council in matters relating to sustainability and environmental impact; (2) promote environmental stewardship; (3) coordinate efforts of individuals and groups on campus; and (4) educate the campus community about sustainable practices.

The charge of the Council is to: Lead through example by promoting the incorporation of environmental concerns in University decisions

Promote conservation of natural resources to the best of our ability and the creation of sustainable practices and programs on campus

Educate our community about the necessity of sustainable environmental practices and ecologically friendly economics

Identify and support research areas and topics for faculty and students

Build relationships with local governments, businesses, and local citizens in order to promote environmentally sound practices within the region

Know and understand local, national and international programs to ensure that our environmental practices and policies adhere to or exceed the global vision for a sustainable future."
