As a Benedictine institution, we take seriously our commitment to stewardship and to incorporating the goals of sustainability into every facet of life. As a university, we have the duty to prepare students to be responsible citizens, prepared to meet the social, ethical, local and global challenges of today. To these ends, the Office of Sustainability was created to help connect the Saint John’s community with the information and tools necessary to make our institution sustainable for generations to come.
The Office of Sustainability at SJU is committed to the effort of creating a sustainable campus by focusing on the triple bottom line: equity, economy and the environment. The direction and knowledge for this effort comes from the Saint John’s Sustainable Campus Committee and our sustainability staff.
