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

The name and a brief description of each student group:

Sustainable UCR is a grassroots student-led organization that advocates for sustainable practices on campus. We believe that there is a need for change and that students are LEEDers in making that change. We aim to empower students with knowledge and skills that enable them to become leaders in sustainability. We do this in a number of ways, by raising awareness among the student body, staff, and faculty, by giving input on campus and system wide policies, and by connection students to larger regional and statewide networks.
