Committees

Sustainability Advisory Committee
The Campus Environmental Issues Committee and the President's Climate Commitment Committee merged to become the Sustainability Advisory Committee in spring 2008. The mission of the Sustainability Advisory Committee is to oversee the implementation of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment and the Talloires Declaration. The committee recommends policies and practices which best reflect the college’s commitment to an environmentally sustainable world. In addition, the committee functions as a conduit for information exchange about campus sustainability initiatives.

Zero Waste Committee
To work toward the goal of zero waste, the Zero Waste Committee is an advisory group to provide leadership for the Macalester College Recycling Organization (MacRO),  the Facilities Services department, and the Sustainability Office. The committee develops strategies for successful campus waste reduction efforts. Contact Suzanne Savanick Hansen at for more information.
