What is the Sustainability Hub?

The Sustainability Hub is a physical and virtual space that seeks to foster collaboration, cultivate connection, and bolster engagement for all things sustainability-related on campus. The Hub hosts events, creates programming, provides access to curated information and resources, highlights the work being done by faculty, students, staff, and local community members, and looks to support any additional sustainability efforts taking place within the campus community. Originally created by Librarians Jennifer Embree and Neyda Gilman, the overall goal of the Sustainability Hub is to support the long-term cultivation of a campus-wide culture where sustainability efforts are valued, recognized, and easily accessible.

The Physical Space:

The Physical Space of the Sustainability Hub is located in the Science Library atrium on Binghamton's Vestal Campus. The space contains:

  • The Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) Climate Resilience Hub
  • The Seed Library
  • TerraCycling Station
  • The Sustainability Book Collection
  • Loanable Citizen Science Kits
  • Library lending program for kilowatt meters & air quality monitors 
  • Posters and artwork depicting sustainability-related research and work done by Binghamton faculty and students
  • Meeting room space for in-person events, poster sessions, and sustainability student organization club meetings

The Virtual Space:

The Virtual space of the Sustainability Hub includes this Sustainability Guide and a designated "Sustainability Hub" section in the University's Institutional Repository (AKA the Binghamton ORB).
