Sustainability is a key priority at California State University, Northridge, integrated into all aspects of the university from operations and infrastructure to outreach, education and research.  CSUN’s 10-year Sustainability Plan lays out our goals and activities in ten different functional areas.  Everyone at the university – administrators, staff, faculty and students – is an integral part of these efforts. We are a proud signatory to Second Nature’s Presidents’ Climate Commitment and are following a Climate Action Plan that will guide us towards climate neutrality by 2040.

There are many ways for you to get involved!
