The Campus Environment




These links should help you get involved in environmental issues on campus, locally, and regionally. Unfortunately, environmental issues are poorly or superficially represented at most GSU and local sites. We encourage efforts to increase the profile of local environmental issues on the web.

Be sure to check out the National Wildlife Federation's State of the Campus Environment: A National Report Card on Environmental Performance and Sustainability in Higher Education. To see the online version, click here.
