The annual Campus Sustainability Summit is a vehicle for students, faculty and staff to engage in sustainability goals, planning and updates.

The 2016 Diversity Summit featured the workshop "Justice: An Integral Part of Sustainability". In 2016 a monthly sustainability workshop and tour series was held to share information and resources on campus sustainability programs and initiatives (food, energy, grounds, etc).
