Does the institution have an active student group focused on sustainability?:

A brief description of the student group:

Ball State University has four student groups whose central focus is sustainability:

The Ball State University Energy Action Team (BEAT) is a student-led group dedicated to increasing awareness of energy use on campus and creating energy reduction initiatives.

The Ball State University Emerging Green Builders (EGB) is an interdisciplinary group of students, each with unique talents and diverse backgrounds. They examine and discuss passive design and renewable energy as they work to become the future leaders in the green building industry.

The Ball State University Natural Resources (NR) Club raises environmental awareness and the concern of students for the preservation and conservation of the natural world through service projects, speakers, and activities.

The Ball State University Students for a Sustainable Campus (SSC) is a grassroots organization that promotes sustainability on the Ball State University campus. The group has worked on many projects including Focus the Nation, Recyclemania and Step It Up (a national global warming action day) and has encouraged Housing and Dining Services to be more environmentally friendly by improving their recycling system and implementing a reusable-bottle program.
