Contribute to building a more humane, just, and sustainable world

SCU is proud to be one of the 132 founding universities from around the world that have committed to Pope Francis’ 7-Year Journey Towards Integral Ecology through the Laudato Si’ Action Platform — an initiative to advance integral ecology and sustainability across the university. In collaboration with SCU’s Division of Mission & Ministry, the Center for Sustainability has facilitated the involvement of over 600 members of the SCU community in developing a 7-year strategic sustainability action plan. We are thrilled by the energy and enthusiasm our campus is bringing to these conversations. By Fall 2023, the plan will be complete with goals, strategies, public dashboards, and playbooks to orient our efforts and collective action towards building a more humane, just, and sustainable world.

Gifts to the three Center for Sustainability funds (food systems, climate neutrality, and student changemakers) will accelerate our ability to bridge academics, operations, and student life at SCU while advancing integral ecology.

Gifts to the Environmental Justice & the Common Good Initiative pay student research assistants to work with faculty members on collaborative research with community-based organizations and agencies in disadvantaged communities.  Help students to apply their research skills directly to community needs for food security, access to safe water, protection from toxic chemicals, and other environmental justice issues around our region and around the world.

The tUrn Climate Crisis Awareness & Action Project is an urgent invitation to everyone of all disciplines to confront the climate crisis and improve their capacity to contribute to just solutions. This week-long series of events happens twice a year, in April and October.
