Friday, 25th of January 2019 Views - 769

California State University is a public university system in California. With 23 campuses and eight off-campus centers enrolling 484,300 students with 26,858 faculty and 25,305 staff, CSU is the largest four-year public university system in America.

A Guardian of Natural Resources

The CSU is cognizant of its responsibility to serve as a guardian of the state’s natural resources—not only as a consumer of these resources but also as an institutional leader. The CSU campuses have committed to sustainability initiatives such as the Presidents’ Climate Commitment, the international higher education-sponsored the Tailors Declaration, and have also joined associations and voluntary green programs. Sustainability and related fields of study are offered as undergraduate majors as well as graduate degree programs to prepare the next generation of environmental leaders.

Creative measures to Incorporate Sustainability

The CSU campuses have adopted creative measures to incorporate sustainability in their everyday operations. The broad scope of green initiatives CSU campuses has committed to are closely aligned with the state-wide Integrated Energy Policy which includes energy efficiency, water conservation, alternative transportation, local food options, recycling/waste reduction, green outreach/community action, green building/sustainable design and renewable energy.

Students at the forefront

Students play a key role in the design and implementation of various innovative “green” initiatives that not only raise environmental awareness in the local community, but also ensure that graduates will join the community tomorrow with a deeper understanding of sustainability and an increased environmental sensibility. A key example is the Humboldt State University students’ creation of a fee to fund student-led energy efficiency projects. The CSU will continue to meet the sustainability challenges of the 21st century using creative and feasible solutions that can be adopted across its campuses.
