Southern Cross University

Southern Cross University has a strong commitment to its role as a leader in achieving environmental, social and economic sustainability through our teaching, research and operations. The University Strategic Plan 2011-2015 has embedded sustainability as a core strategic goal. Goal 4 states that "We will enhance our performance in a sustainable and responsible manner".

Southern Cross University understands its responsibilities as a consumer of earth's finite resources to engage in global citizenship and environmental stewardship for sustainability. SCU is addressing sustainability by fostering and embedding a culture of sustainability across the organisation and its communities, addressing Sustainable Education in teaching and research; Campus Sustainability in management and operations; and Partnerships to enhance collaboration for sustainability.

The SCU One Planet program has been developed to inform, engage and empower staff to develop skills for sustainable practice. The program will encourage and support behaviour change, continual learning, innovation and the sharing of best practice.
