We aim to be a model of campus and community sustainability. The University of Redlands is recognized nationally for students' sustainable efforts in programs such as the Arbor Day Foundation's Tree Campus USA program. We're also a California Climate Actions Corps Partner, a state-managed program leveraging the power of AmeriCorps to advance climate actions that engage communities, cultivate change, and leave a lasting impact.
At Redlands, students can pursue an array of opportunities in sustainability such as volunteer projects, work-study jobs and educational workshops.
For example, students are responsible for the construction and development of the Sustainable University of Redlands Farm (S.U.R.F) and the LaFourcade Community Garden. Students work in S.U.R.F on a daily basis to maintain crop growth, and its crops are sold to our campus food service or given to local food distribution programs.
