The Sustainability Subcommittee – Green Team

The Green Team works to teach sustainability practices to the Division of Student Affairs and the campus community in a fun and exciting way. Through assessment, fact-finding and a resource manual, the subcommittee educates and encourages staff to play a more active role in maintaining the environment — both at work and at home.

Student Affairs Green Office Certification

In an effort to become the leanest, greenest office of Student Affairs, departments are racing to complete USC’s Green Office Certification Program this spring. Offices who enroll in the program earn Green Office Certificates — Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum — based on a point system that rewards environmentally-friendly actions.
