Sustainability Champions Program


Launched in 2019, the Sustainability Champions program is an initiative to engage and empower CSUN employees to expand sustainability knowledge and practices within their areas of influence. This network of sustainability communicators and practitioners fosters a culture of environmental and social stewardship, with the goal of having representation in every department across the campus. Sustainability Champions serve as an informational resource to others in their department, and help identify opportunities to integrate sustainability into everyday operations.
