Creation Care Council

Purpose

The council coordinates with other groups to develop concrete steps and long-term plans for creation care on EMU's campus. The Council also serves as a visionary body directly involved in long-term sustainability planning for the University.

Decisions

Any member of the campus community is invited to participate and submit ideas. Decisions are made by consensus.

Membership

The EMU President will appoint a Vice President from President's Cabinet and SGA will appoint a student senator to serve as representative. The remaining members should consist of one staff person each from Physical Plant and Marketing and Communications, a student chosen by Earthkeepers who ideally is also involved with Sustainable Foods Initiative (SFI), three additional faculty appointed by the Provost's office representing a wide variety of academic departments, two additional staff members-at-large, and the EMU sustainability coordinator. An additional at-large member from among graduate students is optional.

Faculty representatives serve three-year terms
