It provides information to help individuals become more efficient and lead a sustainable life that reduces impacts on the environment. Home to student environmental clubs and committees working on campus sustainability initiatives and research, the CEUS offers a resource library, information about environmental events and organizations.  The CEUS is headquarters for Sustainable Works, and offers informative ecotours on request.

Demonstration Gardens The CEUS features an all-native landscape, rain barrels, and demonstration vegetable garden.
