The ESP is the heartbeat of the campus environmental community.
The Environmental Center, the Outback, and the Alternative Transportation Coordinator are the student-led hubs that make up the ESP. All these positions are committed to serving students by helping them grow their passions and discover what sustainability looks like in their own lives. Our united purpose is first and foremost to create and continue a steady flow of collaboration and dialogue around environmental issues.
The ESP houses the combined power of the following offices:
Western Student Transportation Coordinator is dedicated to making sure every student can have a fulfilling college experience without a car. The Alternative Transportation Coordinator links the Associated Students and the Sustainable Transportation Office by managing WWU’s student shuttle, coordinating student bus pass distribution and making Western students leaders in the move to alternative transportation through education and outreach.
The Outback has a long history of commitment to providing students with experiential learning opportunities to get their hands dirty and learn about food production, ecological systems and sustainable land use. From student garden plots to composting workshops, the Outback gets people outside and gets their hands in the soil. Wander through this campus treasure located behind the Fairhaven dorms!
The Environmental Center is a resource center to connect all the movers and shakers of the environmental campus community. Keep up-to-date on all the environmental happenings put on my student clubs and community groups. Check out the latest environmental topics in our resource library (DVDs, books and publications).

Together the whole ESP works to keep the environmentally-conscious conversation growing on campus and empower more and more students to add their voices to the fray, all working together for a sustainable present and future.
