Sustainability

Residential Living & Learning Sustainability Team

The Residential Living and Learning Sustainability team includes both students and a full time professional who promote educating students on how to live sustainably not only on the campus but to carry these practices with them into their respective career fields and hopefully their lives.

How We Define Sus-tain-a-bil-i-ty:

Sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.  

Who We Are:  

RLL Sustainability works to preserve and protect not only the natural resources, but financial resources as well.  Our mission is to get the campus and the community involved in sustainable practices in both an academic and non-academic setting.  

What We Do:

Along with setting up events on campus to get the student body more involved, the personnel at RLL Sustainability also get down and dirty by helping out with the recycling effort.  Texas A&M University Commerce has no contractual recycling services instead they are all handled through the personnel at RLL Sustainability.  Sustainability collects, sorts, and then recycles all of the Universities recyclable materials by hand.
