California State University, Sacramento Sacramento State Leader

Partnership with Keep America Beautiful is first in the nation

Keep America Beautiful event Sacramento State has long been recognized as a leader in promoting environmental sustainability, and the University has added another item to its long list of distinctions: the first college campus in the nation to be an official Keep America Beautiful affiliate.

The partnership with Keep California Beautiful, recognized during an April 20 event at Sac State’s Bioconversion and Compost Facility, formalizes the University’s relationship with the organization and is aimed at developing a model that can be adopted at colleges and universities across the nation.

Through the partnership, students will have access to volunteer and internship opportunities. The University also will be able to share data from student and faculty research, as well as tap into additional resources such as grants and programmatic resources available through Keep America Beautiful.

“We’re committed to keeping California beautiful,” said President Robert S. Nelsen at the April 20 event. “Whether it’s biofuel – if you don’t finish something on your plate today, it’s going to be gasoline tomorrow in our buses around campus – or whether it’s chipping the trees that fall down, or whether it’s helping pick up litter, we are here to make certain that we have a sustainable campus and a sustainable world.”
