Green Jacks

Also known as the Student Environmental Caucus, the Green Jacks help create a culture of sustainability on campus. Every student, faculty, staff, and administrator at the university can be a Green Jack.

As an organization, the Green Jacks respond to the interests of its members. While there are still a few signature events, members determine the bulk of the projects.

Meetings are held every Monday: 6pm at the Health and Learning Center (HLC), room 2405.

Please read our weekly updated meeting notes here.
