Students are at the core of every sustainable effort on campus. Without student support, several programs and organizations wouldn't be successful. You can be a part of the sustainable movement on campus and make a difference! Here are a few ways that you can help yourself and Mason achieve a sustainable future:

Educate yourself by taking a sustainability-related Green Leaf course. Or join the Mason Core Engagement Series (ENCORE) in Sustainability which combines academic coursework with sustainability-related co-curricular activities that are listed in the Civic Learning and Community Engagement pathway within Patriot Experience.

Are you interested in directly influencing the sustainable future of Mason? Check out Mason's first peer-to-peer program designed to educate the campus community about sustainability. Find out more about becoming a Green Patriot Sustainability Ambassador.

If you are interested in being a part of a community of like-minded students, focused on learning and living sustainably, then consider the Sustainability Living Learning Community (LLC). Find out more about the LLC and how to apply.

Students who have ideas for projects that can improve the sustainability of Mason or would like to do research on the subject can apply for a grant from the Patriot Green Fund, Mason's first and only sustainability fund. Find out more about the PGF and how to apply.

Pursuing a sustainability-related program? One lucky student a year is awarded the Storm Sustainability Scholarship. Don't know if your program fits? Click on Sustainability Studies to find out more!
