Sustainable Living Hub: Student Life
Simultaneously benefiting the quality of life for our students, improving their economic prosperity, and reducing their carbon footprint now and in the future is the goal of our student life sustainability theme. Initiatives that fall within this theme include wellness, diversity, inclusion, affordability and accessibility programs.
The Sustainability Project Laboratory is a database of sustainability-related project proposals. This resource hosts projects and project ideas that can be adopted by faculty, staff, and students for course projects, capstone or senior projects, theses, and more! Projects in the Student Life theme can be found here.
How we're doing
The Climate and Sustainability Ambassadors is initiative started by Dr. Ryan Fogt in the spring of 2019 alongside the launch of the Sustainable Administration Hub.
The Ambassadors spend Fall semester participating, promoting, and hosting events on campus promoting a more sustainable Ohio University.
In the Spring semester the Ambassadors focus on outreach in Southeast Ohio.
The Cats’ Cupboard food pantry provides students access to fresh, frozen, and shelf stable food options to help with hunger. Cats' Cupboard is located in Baker University Center, room 514.
The Cats’ Cupboard Food Pantry offers twice monthly pick-up of free food from the pantry. Pantry members can shop in person or fill out an order form and have their bags pre-packed.
Access to the pantry is provided by appointment.
The Women's Mentoring Program is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors at OHIO University.
In this two semester-long program, mentees are paired with a female mentor in their personal and professional fields of interest during the Fall semester. Mentors and mentees decide on the format of their mentoring relationship and the time commitment they wish to make, but all are required to meet at least once a month, face-to-face, and to attend four cohort events each year.
