Go GREEN with the Power of Maroon

The Earth Day celebration is 45 years old, check out some of the EKU Earth Day events coming up! Earth Week events are here:


Welcome to EKU's gateway to sustainable resources.

 In order to sustain our University economically, socially, and environmentally, the Eastern Committee for Environmental Stewardship (ECRES) and the Office of Sustainability is comprised of an interdepartmental effort to:

  • Provide information to administration, staff, and students on how EKU is practicing and promoting sustainability on campus

  • Serve as a "hub" to connect and enhance the visibility of existing EKU resources & efforts
  • Increase awareness of the need for a more environmentally sensitive, socially equitable, and economically stable culture 

Like the student group of volunteers, Colonel Green Crew, on Facebook , & follow the Colonel Green Crew on Twitter for the latest student activities, projects & events.
