Welcome to the Office of Sustainability Practices

Hello Lakers and friends!  At GVSU, sustainability is one of our core values.  We value the guiding principles of sustainability in helping to meet the current needs of our faculty, staff, and students without compromising the needs and resources of future generations.  We model best practices and provide our students with excellence in sustainability education by imbedding theory, systems-oriented thinking, and service learning into our curricular and extracurricular programs.  We look forward to getting to know you as you move forward in your sustainability journey!
