Creation Care Council


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.


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


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
