Senate Sustainability Committee

Charge

The Committee on Sustainability will research and advocate ways that USC can make all of its policies and operations more consistent with environmental sustainability on a university-wide and school-by-school level.  The committee will discuss and make recommendations as to how our faculty can use our teaching and research to increase awareness of and take actions consistent with environmental sustainability.  It will make suggestions to the administration through the Senate as to actions and policies that could be developed to promote and increase sustainability on all of our campuses.  The committee’s areas of examination will include teaching, research, and the operations of the University and each School in adopting the most pragmatic and advanced behaviors relating to our handling and use of energy, water, food, transportation and waste.
