The Office of Sustainability is partnering with Environmental Studies to create a steering committee of faculty, staff, and students to help move the Wash U community closer towards the Environmental Justice Initiative’s stated goals.
The steering committee is currently working to create action items focused on integrating environmental justice into the university’s teaching, research, and service by bringing together students, faculty, staff, and community members around key environmental justice concerns in the St. Louis region.

The steering committee is currently looking to expand. The committee meets once a semester, with potential additional working group meetings to address specific action items. If you would like to learn more, or get involved, please contact Angela Hobson at email@example.com.
