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

A brief description of the student group:

UC San Diego's Student Sustainability Collective (SSC) functions as a student-managed subset of the Sustainability Resource Center (SRC). The SRC consists of three general spaces: the SSC, sustainability staff offices, and public outreach space. The Collective provides a space for the community to engage the university in proactive change for sustainability through programming, events, outreach, resources, support, and community. The Student Sustainability Collective at the Sustainability Resource Center was founded on the principles of community, service, collaboration, and empowerment under the belief that engaging and providing resources to the campus community on issues of sustainability will lead to a more sustainable future. Accordingly, the Student Sustainability Collective stresses a high importance in service to students, staff, and faculty. Recognizing the value of social justice and peace, environmentalism, and responsible business policies in view of the challenges posed by inequality, climate change, and other issues, the Student Sustainability Collective is committed to the triple bottom line of sustainability as a foundational principle in daily operations, interactions, decisions, and purchasing practices. In this light, the Student Sustainability Collective is an important part of the Sustainability Resource Center as it seeks to be positive influence in university life and the surrounding community.
