The ESP houses the combined power of the following offices:


Sustainability, Equity, Justice Fund is an opportunity for students to submit their own project proposals to reduce Western Washington University’s carbon footprint and maintain our position as a leader in campus sustainability. Any idea, big or small, is welcome!

Western Student 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 and the Bellingham community with experiential learning opportunities to get their hands dirty and learn about food production, ecological systems and sustainable land use.

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 by student clubs and community groups. Check out the latest environmental topics in our resource library (DVDs, books and publications). Come help us plan campus programs and events that are relevant to your interests! 

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