UW-Eau Claire's sustainability office. Led by you.

The Student Office of Sustainability (SOS) is one of nine commissions within our Student Senate. Our general assembly meets on a weekly basis to discuss the allocation of “The Green Fund” — a budget of roughly $185,000 in student segregated fees. These funds are allocated to foster sustainability in our campus community through innovation, education, and foundational improvements. Campus community members are invited to submit proposals for consideration by the body to request funding for initiatives that benefit our students in a "big picture" sense through sustainability.

New to the word "sustainability?" No worries! Our office defines sustainability as the intersection of environmental health, economic prosperity, and social well being.
