Graham Sustainability Institute

Student Sustainability Initiative

The Student Sustainability Initiative (SSI) is a resource to support you in your sustainability-related efforts. Our mission is to foster a culture of environmental sustainability and awareness at the University of Michigan by supporting student initiatives, projects, programs, and events—all with the goal of advancing sustainability on campus.

SSI isn’t a club or member organization — rather, we’re a small group of students who work closely with the Graham Sustainability Institute, the Office of Campus Sustainability, and the many student organizations on campus to advance sustainability. To that end, we’re here to connect you with the hundreds of sustainability organizations and initiatives underway at UM.

WHAT WE DO

  • Help you get involved by curating a calendar of campus sustainability events and sending a biweekly newsletter.
  • Offer funding (in the form of grants) for great sustainability-related student ideas.
  • Connect you with the sustainability-focused student orgs that best match your passions.

We want to hear from you! Email us anytime (ssi-board@umich.edu).
