Center for Sustainability
Welcome to our new website! It is under construction so check it often.
Southern Oregon University is uniquely positioned to showcase sustainability as a key campus element. Current campus resources include our on-campus recycling program, environmental studies program, sustainability leadership certificate, Net Impact Club, and the Ecology Center of the Siskiyous.
These resources set SOU apart as a destination for students interested in sustainability science and practice. The “Green House” Adventure: Explorations in Sustainability and Environmental Change, to be launched in Fall of 2013 will further establish SOU as a destination for students interested in exploring sustainability as a core component of their education. The SOU Sustainability Center mobilizes new and existing resources in innovative ways to serve the emerging need for sustainability-inspired project-based expeditionary learning at Southern Oregon University.
The SOU Center for Sustainability is a living and learning laboratory for applied research
and projects in sustainability. The Center serves as a community resource for sustainability
education, fosters sustainable business development, promotes interconnectedness, and facilitates
leadership training through thoughtful learning and practice.
The SOU Center for Sustainability serves Southern Oregon as an interdependent hub of
innovative sustainability training, leadership, and technology. Through community and industry
partnership, the Center models a learning space for innovation, global citizenry, and sustainable
living. The Center adds beauty to the SOU campus as a place of art, resilience, thoughtful
activity, and transformation. SOU students, faculty, and staff work collectively with community
leaders, children, families, businesses, neighbors, leaders, and government to train sustainability
leaders through hands-on authentic solution development. The Center is a place of respect for
culture and tradition, models equity, promotes ecological consciousness, and values fiscal
responsibility. The innovative structure of the Center encourages service learning by providing a
place for community-based problem solving, civic agriculture designed to alleviate food
insecurity, and an explicit focus on synergistic partnership.
