The Center for Environmental Justice and Sustainability (CEJS) envisions an environmentally just and sustainable world for all. Our mission is to inspire care for our community through the research and practice of environmental justice and sustainability. We actively aim to fulfill our mission with on-campus, local and global projects.
By supporting CEJS, donors will inspire our SU community to personally care for the commons, give voice to the overburdened, and train tomorrow’s leaders. Donors will also support SU faculty and student research that advances knowledge in the areas of environmental justice and sustainability.
CEJS seeks to educate and develop leaders for a more just and sustainable world by:
- Engaging students in experiential learning through environmental justice projects such as the aquaponics systems in Seattle, Thailand and Peru; and safe drinking water systems in Haiti
- Strengthening research skills and advancing sustainability literacy through student research
- Providing work experience through internships at CEJS
- Increasing environmental justice and sustainability awareness through co-curricular on-campus activities
