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

A brief description of the student group, including its activities:

Boston University currently has nearly twenty campus community groups related to sustainability and three of them are directly focused on sustainability.

The Environmental Student Organization strives to raise environmental awareness and create beneficial environmental change on campus as well as in the surrounding Boston community through outreach campaigns and community service.

The BU Energy Club is a broad-based group consisting of Graduates, Undergrads, Alumni and Professors that serves as a link between scientists & engineers, entrepreneurs & business-persons, and aspiring policy-makers & government officials at Boston University and other schools in the Greater Boston Area. They aim to synthesize energy-related ideas from a multi-disciplinary stream of educational and professional sources to advance understanding of energy and it’s role within society, industry, technology and policy through empirical, objective energy related education and outreach.

The US Green Building Council Student Group (USGBC Students) at Boston University allows both graduate and undergraduate students to contribute to BU’s mission to encourage sustainable construction and renovation building projects. Members also get great benefits such as reduced student rates for LEED AP certification, networking and career support, seminars, and campaign resources.
