Does the institution have at least one sustainability committee?:
Yes

The charter or mission statement of the committee(s) or a brief description of each committee's purview and activities:

The inclusion of sustainability into the instructional curricula of all departments is needed to stimulate and challenge students to get involved in creative solution-building in their personal and professional lives. As sustainability is not living in ideas alone, strategies are also needed to move towards greater sustainability in the maintenance and development of our Adrian campus. Some of these projects include a comprehensive recycling program, enhanced energy conservation and utilization of renewable energy sources, a poison-free campus environment (e.g. no use of pesticides, fertilizer, coal and petroleum tar, etc.), enriched foods in our cafeteria (organically, locally, and humanely produced), and the integration of SHU into the global community of environmentally- and socially-responsible universities. Since these projects are campus-wide, the Sustainable College Committee includes faculty and staff members from many departments, representatives of the SHU administration, a number of students of various majors, and several Adrian Dominican Sisters.


Members of each committee, including affiliations and role (e.g. staff, student, or faculty):
