To guide our projects and collaborations the committee focuses on implementing a mixture of research, administrative, and department efforts. Projects about recycling and waste management, optimization of transportation and water consumption on campus, and food production and sourcing. Partnerships include Facilities, the SURF garden, Harvest Table, events services, Students for Environmental Action, and the Sustainability Council.

Communications

Our Mission is to connect the senate to the students we represent. We plan to achieve this goal via transparent and open communication. We aim to make it easier than ever for the students to communicate directly with their senate representatives and give quick and thorough feedback. We also work to inform students about their university by sharing recent university developments and resources. Lastly, we exist to make certain there is consistent and full transparency between the senate and the student body so that students know what they voted for and what is being done on their behalf.

Projects

These are projects that have been approved, via majority vote, and founded by ASUR Senate.

Water Bottle Filling Stations  

The goal of the water bottle filling station project is to replace and install drinking fountains with new fountains that fill water bottles. Currently, there are plans to replace the fountains in Melrose, Founders, and California.

Gender Neutral Bathrooms

Waste Basket Project

A project that promotes recycling on campus and makes it easily accessible for students and faculty. The project directly affects Duke and will substitute all the Duke classrooms and offices with recycling cans that have smaller trash cans attached to them. A pop-up booth outside the commons will aid in informing students of on-campus recycling, waste, compost, and sustainable practices on campus and in the City of Redlands.

Office

Senators hold office hours open to the entire university in the S.I.S (Student Information Services) room. Located on the second floor of Hunsaker above the Mail Room. Senators are required to hold 2 office hours a week stationed in the S.I.S. room and 5 total office hours each week. Senators choose their office hours schedules each week, so it is possible that there will not be any Senators holding office hours in S.I.S. at any given time. We are working on getting set schedules finalized for each senator, so you know when we are holding office hours in person.
