Organizations

Leadership & Clubs

Ultimately, sustainability affects all segments of the campus. Knowing that, we have established "Sustainable Catawba," which brings all of those working on sustainability efforts to the table. Campus organizations and departments which are part of the sustainability effort include student organizations:
