Office of Sustainability Practices

We are starting the new academic year with a name change, moving from the Sustainable Community Development Initiative (SCDI) to the Office of Sustainability Practices. The Sustainability office has been in place at GVSU for 10 years, and Sustainability is now the seventh value at the University.  We have moved from initiatives to defined practices in administration and campus operations, educational opportunities, student involvement, and community engagement. GVSU is known locally, regionally, nationally, and globally for applied sustainability best practices on campus and in the community.

Mission

The mission of the Office of Sustainability Practices is to provide Grand Valley administration, faculty, staff, students, and community stakeholders with the required skills and capabilities to become better stewards and responsible global citizens in the workforce, communities, and family life. This site will guide you to information and resources, helping you to become more involved with sustainability efforts at Grand Valley State University and around the world.
