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

A brief description of the student group:

DEA is the Department of Environmental Affairs, a part of the President's Cabinet in the Student Association. DEA is supposed to advise the SA President in ways to make the campus as green as possible. By introducing legislation or suggesting projects, the committee has a direct impact to how the Student Association works. The website for DEA is: http://sa.fredonia.edu/home/?cat=18

CCC is Campus Climate Challenge and is geared towards student activism. It is a group that strives to educate students and engage them in the community. CCC is part of a larger national movement presented by the Energy Action Coalition. CCC has a facebook group site which has a more detailed description on it. http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/SUNY-Fredonia-Campus-Climate-Challenge/133656126221 (or just type SUNY Fredonia Campus Climate Challenge in your facebook search bar).

SUNY Fredonia has two extremely active and well-supported student environmental groups: the Student Association’s Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and Campus Climate Challenge (CCC). Other environmentally focused student groups include Biology Club, Campus Greens/National Green Party, Geology Club, and the Wilderness Club.

The Environmental Affairs Club was founded in the spring semester of 2005 by Shaylah Reagan and the Student Association. This organization was given special privileges as an "Executive Committee" by the Student Association, to carry out its mission of making SUNY Fredonia a greener place. In general the club is an organization that provides a voice for the environment on campus. The group is willing to address any and all environmental issues, especially those that deal with on-campus issues. Among our chief concerns are increasing recycling on campus and creating a "carbon neutral" environment. Department of Environmental Affairs website: http://www.fredonia.edu/sa/environmentalclub/

The Campus Climate Challenge is a project of more than 30 leading youth organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Challenge leverages the power of young people to organize on college campuses and high schools across Canada and the U.S. to win 100% Clean Energy policies at their schools. The Challenge is growing a generation-wide movement to stop global warming, by reducing the pollution from our high schools and colleges down to zero, and leading our society to a clean energy future. http://www.climatechallenge.org/
