Sustainability Advisory Committee

"The Sustainability Advisory Committee provides advice and recommendations to the VIU Environment and Sustainability Office - on behalf of the university community - towards meeting VIU’s sustainability commitments as outlined in the approved VIU Sustainability Policy (2010).

The committee’s advice, recommendations, and actions are important to, among other things; reducing VIU’s environmental footprint; institutionalizing a sustainability ethic amongst students and employees; encouraging the incorporation of sustainability topics into curriculum in all areas of the university; and increasing and promoting VIU’s leadership role in advancing comprehensive environmental, social, economic and cultural sustainability best practices on our campuses and amongst the communities we serve."
