CNUW – Center for Native and Urban Wildlife
CNUW exists to bring students, faculty and the community together to learn about biodiversity and foster stewardship of the plants and animals in our environment. CNUW projects include educational programs, museum tours, field trips, camping, hiking, research, and restoration work (re-planting desert plants). To learn more about CNUW visit their website.
The purpose of the Green Club at Scottsdale Community College is to promote awareness of the sustainability program on campus; to encourage students, faculty and staff to be conscious about their decisions in regards to waste and purchasing; to foster dialogue on sustainability issues; to develop ways to improve the use of consumable resources on campus; to collaborate with similar clubs at other colleges, as well as organizations in the community on sustainability projects; and, finally, to organize sustainability-related events including guest speakers and presentations.
Please check back in Spring 2015 for details on how to get involved!
Social justice is a central factor in the effort to build a sustainable society.

The Office of Service Learning & Leadership sponsors a number of courses and volunteer-based activities open to students throughout the year, including the opportunity to become a member of the Artie’s Community for Service (ACeS) student group!
A number of organizations on campus host donation drives throughout the year, accepting unwanted books, clothes and shoes, and extra non-perishable foods to give to those in need. Take this opportunity to turn what may your trash into another’s treasure by keeping an eye out for these collection boxes and bringing your unwanted items to donate on campus.
