Sustainability Committee

The SGA Sustainability Committee was established in 2007 to unite students interested in encouraging good stewardship of resources, serving as ambassadors for sustainable practices, and making a difference on Oklahoma State University's campus.

Our Programs

  • Real Cowboys Recycle

    Through their annual and award-winning tailgating recycling efforts during each Cowboy football season, the committee is working to reduce OSU's environmental footprint with "Real Cowboys Recycle." Join the Sustainability Committee CampusLink page for upcoming events. 

  • Green Student Forum

    With the Green Student Forum, like-minded students and organizations are welcomed for an evening of collaboration and innovation. Each spring during the week-long celebration, EarthFest, the committee and all of OSU's most sustainability-minded organizations make efforts to educate peers and members of the community about how they can make small changes in their everyday lives that make a big difference in the lives of others.

  • Green Student Initiative Grant

    The Sustainability Committee also oversees the selection process of the Green Student Initiative Grants - a program in which students with new ideas for OSU's campus can be provided resources to make their original initiatives happen. Through an application and interview-presentation process, recipients are selected by a panel of judges and awarded grants to fund their initiatives. Green Student Initiative Grantapplications will be available January 2024 and will be accepted until March 2024. More details regarding past grants are coming soon. 


Upcoming Dates

  • Stay tuned for the Sustainability Committee’s weekly meeting schedule.
  • The Fall Green Student Forum will be held in late November.
  • The Spring Green Student Forum will be held in late March more details coming soon.
  • Green Student Initiative Grant applications are closed but will reopen in spring 2024.
