A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

Southern Oregon University holds a permanent seat on the City of Ashland's Conservation Commission. SOU works with the Conservation Commission to educate and advocate for the wise use of resources by the city government and the people of Ashland.

SOU's recycling program has partnered with Southern Oregon Goodwill to provide opportunities for students, staff, and faculty to donate unwanted items to the local Goodwill through campus collection drives. Southern Oregon Goodwill recycles or resells all items collected and invests $.84 of every $1.00 in career services and counseling for the local community.
