Sustainability at EKU


Welcome to EKU's gateway to sustainable resources.

 In order to sustain our University economically, socially, and environmentally, the Eastern Committee for Environmental Stewardship (ECRES) and the Office of Sustainability is comprised of an interdepartmental effort to:

  • Provide information to administration, staff, and students on how EKU is practicing and promoting sustainability on campus

  • Serve as a "hub" to connect and enhance the visibility of existing EKU resources & efforts
  • Increase awareness of the need for a more environmentally sensitive, socially equitable, and economically stable culture 

Follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to stay updated on sustainability news, upcoming events, and progress being made on campus.

"Sustainability just makes sense. It's much more than recycling and hugging trees. Sustainability is a practical approach toward making decisions that lessen our environmental impacts, while at the same time improve social equity and economic prosperity for everyone. "

"Sustainability is all about finding solutions that meet our resource needs of the present without compromising the ability for future generations to also enjoy a high quality life."
