Sustainability Advisory Council

The Sustainability Advisory Council (MUSAC) is an advisory council to the President and the Administrative Cabinet on matters of sustainability to the university. The 12-member council includes students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members. Every year interested persons may self-nominate for open positions. Membership on the council is approved by the Administrative Cabinet of the President.

On-Going Campus Initiatives

Marylhurst works regularly to:

  • Reduce energy use
  • Adopt and follow low-impact building, remodeling and transportation practices
  • Make environmentally responsible purchases
  • Make sparing use of resources and products, and abundant use of recycling opportunities
  • We hold a strong sense of stewardship for our beautiful campus and its plants and animals (we are a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat), and take seriously the campus' health and well-being as a sanctuary for wild nature and for our human souls.
