Student Groups

Join the Movement

BU boasts 450+ student groups. Whatever your area of interest, there is likely a student group that will capture your attention. Below is a list of student groups that are involved in conservation, climate change, energy, environmental justice, and/or sustainability. And with any organizations you’re involved with beyond this list, we encourage you to find ways to incorporate sustainability.

Environmental Leadership Network (ELN)

ELN brings together students and representatives from each sustainability-related student organization to increase communication and collaboration, helping to build a more cohesive community. Student leaders are invited to join ELN on Facebook. For questions about ELN, email us.
