A brief description of the activities and substantive accomplishments of the institution-wide coordinating body or officer during the previous three years:

The Office of sustainability has implemented a "Green Office Program" which is designed to identify and recognize offices on campus that have implemented sustainable office programs which support daily operations and maintenance.

The Sustainability Office also guest lectures for the student body, hosts events throughout the year, and has implemented campaigns across campus such as the strawless campaign. Events include energy contests in the dorms, an electric vehicle exhibition, hosting a green basketball game, and hosting an annual Earth week fair.

The Sustainability office also partners with the Center for Service and Action (CSA) to create fellowships. In 2018-2019, Green LMU and CSA worked with a student fellow whose focus was on bringing garden and composting education to a multi unit family housing unit. The fellow worked with the Long Beach Arts Colony in assessing and evaluating garden logistics, irrigation, education, and resident composting.

The Sustainability Office also provide campus tours showcasing the Lions Garden, the recycling plant, and the solar panels around campus.
