At SLUH, we define sustainability as “using our resources in a way that cares for people and creation today, while still protecting the needs of future generations.”

As an institution, SLUH is sustainable and yet we are called to action through the Apostolic Preferences to continually strive to better Care for Our Common Home by:

  • personal reflection, prayer, and behavior change
  • supporting local institutional and community actions
  • learning about and participating in national and global efforts towards sustainable development

The Global Citizenship and Sustainability Committee, student sustainability teams, and our faculty and staff are working together to help make SLUH a more resilient and Catholic institution with respect for how we care for God’s Creation – and we need your help and partnership.

If you are interested in working with SLUH in any of these initiatives or helping to develop a sustainable partnership, please contact Anne Marie Lodholz, Chair of the Global Citizenship and Sustainability Committee, at
