The Ambler Campus Sustainability Council (ACSC or Council) advises the Dean of Ambler College in the development of sustainability initiatives on the Ambler campus with respect to the built environment, environmental management, programs, services, and university policies. The Council identifies national innovations in the context of sustainable development and assesses Temple Universityís participation in and readiness for sustainable development initiatives. After conducting such reviews, the Council makes recommendations to the Dean on priority initiatives, and implementation strategies.

The Council members include faculty, staff, and students from the Deanís office, Ambler College, main campus, academic departments, Center for Sustainable Communities, Arboretum, and facilities. The council meets once a month and the meetings are open to the Ambler Campus community. If you would like to get involved, please contact Brad Flamm,
