Campus Environmental Center
The Campus Environmental Center (CEC) is the largest organization on campus for students interested in the environment. CEC works to empower the university community to reduce its environmental impact and foster a genuine culture of sustainability on campus through collaborative and constructive means.
Engineers for a Sustainable World
Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) is an organization devoted to sustainable development. ESW aims to find ways to continue advancing technologically without adversely affecting the environment in which we live. Whether you're an engineering student with an idea for a project, a non-engineer looking for a different type of organization, a professor with interest in leading a research project, or a local professional interested in applying technology to international development, ESW urges you to get involved.
Food Studies Project
The Food Studies Project brings together a vibrant Food Community of students, faculty, staff and local food enthusiasts around their shared interest in interdisciplinary studies of food. The Food Studies Project is a catalyst for changing the way people eat, think about, and interact with their food. The group's goal is to drive this focus and momentum towards an official food studies program at UT Austin. By providing an environment that encourages interdisciplinary communication and creative collaboration, the Food Studies Project is equipping future leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to benefit our world’s food systems.
LBJ Green Society
The Green Society’s goal is for policy students to learn more about local and national environmental issues. The club facilitates engagement of the LBJ School with the greater environmental community across Austin and the University. We oversee the recycling efforts at LBJ and serve as the go-between with the sustainability office, other university environmental groups and LBJ students. We also create opportunities for policy students to learn more about environmental issues by sponsoring brown bag lectures, film screenings and organizing forums—including the inaugural UT Energy Forum this February. We also make an effort to regularly get out and enjoy the natural world we strive to protect.
Net Impact McCombs
The mission of Net Impact McCombs is to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. Net Impact members at UT-Austin are current and emerging leaders in a number of fields including sustainable business, green marketing, clean energy and technology, public sector consulting, corporate social responsibility, and education.
The Longhorn Center for Civic Engagement
The ‘third arm’ of sustainability – social sustainability – is arguably best reflected in the University's outstanding record of service on campus and in the community. Our 50,000 students perform over 6 million hours of service annually, including a substantial effort in environmental cleanups, disaster relief, and environmental improvements and restoration. The Volunteer and Service Learning Center serves as a catalyst for the advancement of civic responsibility, community action, and social change.
