A brief description of the student group:

The Environmental Affairs Committee operates within the executive branch of student government. Environmental Affairs seeks to increase awareness of ways students can act in a more environmentally friendly manner, and works with the University to make campus operations more sustainable. This committee works on continuing projects such as: recycling efforts, green-energy expansion, and the use of more environmentally friendly products around campus. The Environmental Affairs committee also helps coordinate all environmental student groups at UNC. Their official mission statement is: “To collaborate with students, faculty, and staff to create a more cohesive environmental presence on campus while promoting key environmental principles, encouraging sustainable lifestyles, and facilitating improved cooperation between student environmental groups and the University.”
