The Environmental and Sustainability Commission has been a part of Student Government for the past 6 years and was renewed again for 2017-18 by President Payne with the signing of Executive Order 103-02.
This Commission is tasked with finding ways to make EMU more eco-friendly. The Commission will be working on initiatives such as:
Educate students on individual impact and reducing personal waste
Improve recycling operations
Reduce food waste and help dining improve efficiency
Promote energy reduction across campus
Advising student organizations of how to make their events waste free
For more information on the Commission, or if you would like to get involved by joining the Commission please contact Leah Vanlandingham (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Director of Sustainability.
