The Office of Sustainability provides leadership for the development and implementation of strategies in student life, academics and curriculum, campus operations, research, and community engagement to create a sustainable campus environment. Comprised of the Director of Sustainability and part time students in the Sustainability Student Intern Program, the Office of Sustainability supports a culture of greater environmental, social, and economic balance within higher education while serving as a facilitator and resource for sustainable efforts at Kansas State University.
The K-State EcoReps program is your opportunity to advance sustainability! EcoReps will help their departments to be more energy efficient, increase recycling and reduce waste, and pursue environmentally responsible purchasing practices. Participants are asked to act as a communications liaison for their department, provide feedback to improve programs, and attend semi-annual meetings with other sustainability representatives to share progress and upcoming initiatives related to the department. Learn more about K-State EcoReps.
The Green Action Fund is a joint project of the Office of Sustainability with the Student Governing Association to fund projects that enhance the sustainability of the K-State campuses. For more information on the fund and the guidelines for submitting a proposal, see the Green Action Fund webpage.
