Sustainability Committee


About the Committee

The United Student Government (USG) Sustainability Committee seeks to make our university a sustainable institution. We believe that as a Jesuit university, Fordham has a responsibility to care for the continuing health of the planet and its people. Our objective is to pursue concrete, effective initiatives that advance the goal of a healthy, viable future. We push every student, faculty, and staff member to reduce their present environmental impact while also seeking to imbue them with a long-term sustainable mindset 

Please contact the Chairperson, Maggie Tattersfield, at

Sustainability Committee Meetings are open to all students. Weekly meetings are held in Campbell Multipurpose on Wednesdays at 6:30pm.
