  • Is Students for Sustainability a club?
    No, Students for Sustainability is not a club. Rather, we are an ASUA student government program! Some of our fellow ASUA programs include the Campus Pantry, Spring Fling, and SafeRide amongst others.
  • Who does Students for Sustainbility work with?
    We work with many people, organizations, and departments in the UA and Tucson communities! Our primary partner on campus is the Office of Sustainability, but we also have worked with the Institute of the Environment, Student Engagement & Career Development, Facilities Management, the Rec Center, the UA Libraries, WRRC, and so many other amazing UA groups. We have worked with off-campus groups such as Watershed Mangement Group, Physicians for Social Responsiblity, and Citizens' Climate Lobby. If your group is interested in working with us, please reach out to us at!
  • How can I get involved?
    If you are a student at the UA (undergraduate or graduate), you are welcome to join Students for Sustainability and be a part of the push for a greener campus!

  • Is the UA Community Garden affliated with Students for Sustainability?
    In 2012, our passionate SFS members started the UA Community Garden. Since then, our garden has blossomed into a separate program under the Office of Sustainability! The garden remains a lovely oasis on campus and community hub for students.

    Some of our many projects over the years include the Highland Cistern, the Just Add Water gallery, the Decolonizing Sustainbility Panel Series, Yoga in the Garden, Stories in the Garden, the Wildcat Waste Challenge, the pollinator garden basins, and many others!

    Sure thing! If you'd like to interview one of our members, or simply chat with us about a topic, we'd love to set up a time to meet you. Just email the directors at and we will get back to you!
  • Do I have to be a specific major to get invovled?
    Not at all! Sustainability is an intersectional cause and we need students of all backgrounds to help us represent all the components that make up sustainability.
