The Clemson University Commission on Sustainability was established in September of 2009 by President James Barker. In December of 2010, the commission released a draft of the University’s first comprehensive Sustainability Plan, acting as the basis for all sustainability practices at Clemson. The plan was filed in accordance with the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment, to which Clemson is a signatory. In 2018, a revised charter was adopted, and the commission became The Clemson University Sustainability Commission. It is now the coordinating body for our efforts to become a model of sustainability among institutions. To creatively address sustainability, the commission facilitates collaboration among students, faculty, staff and the community by integrating education, research and public service with the social, economic and environmental infrastructure. The commission meets once a month and meetings are open to all members of the University community. Individuals interested in becoming involved are encouraged to attend!
