Student Sustainability Advisory Committee

The Student Sustainability Advisory Committee (SSAC) serves as the student perspective in the values, educational material, policies, practices, and projects that strengthen the campus-wide commitment to sustainability. The SSAC facilitates a shared avenue with the Sustainability Advisory Committee by providing detailed proposals and recommendations in furthering the sustainable practices of UCF’s institutional culture.

The SSAC shall consist of no more than twelve voting members, chosen through an application process. All committee members shall be active UCF students and passionate about the advancement of campus and community sustainability. Committee members will be appointed to serve a one (1) year appointment and will require reappointment to serve subsequent terms. The Chair will nominate members for appointment. The Office of Sustainability Initiatives will appoint new members to the committee in the event of a vacancy outside of the application cycle.
