BSOS Sustainability Task Force



The BSOS Sustainability Task Force (STF) is made up of students from departments and programs within the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Each semester the task force chooses a salient problem to campus sustainability and works toward finding a solution. From building a solar powered charging study station, to creating awareness of food behavioral impacts, the students research viable alternatives or enhancements, survey fellow students, and write a grant for implementation funds.

Not only is the Sustainability Task Force a student leadership group, it's also a 1-credit course (BSOS388T).  Students are expected to meet for one hour a week as a group, and spend another hour outside of class working on STF projects. (Note that in fall 2017, the 1-credit class will not be offered, although the STF will continue to meet on a monthly basis.)
