Organizations

There are many sustainability-themed organizations for students to be a part of in Sewanee. To get involved, students should contact the students mentioned below.

  

Divest

 

 

Divest Sewanee is an organization of students united under the desire to make The University of the South environmentally responsible in their investments. We are taking action to get both the Student Investment Club and the University Board of Regents to withdraw investments from companies who engage in socially irresponsible practices and consider alternative investments that reflect the University's core values.

For more information or to learn how to join, please contact Georgia Konstam or Sara Thompson

Green House

 

 

 

Students have the opportunity to live in a house that fosters a community for those with similar sustainable curiousities. The Green House residents are a collection of individuals dedicated to cultivating long-term relationships between natural and social environments. These students work to promote ecological awareness on campus and to further care for the earth through positive interactions between people and nature.‌‌
