The Services & Sustainability Committee is dedicated to any policy and programming regarding Duke student services. These services encompass many areas including dining, transportation, health and wellness, technology, libraries, and the DukeCard. Additionally, the Services & Sustainability Committee focuses on ensuring that the university continues to prioritize sustainability throughout all aspects of campus. By partnering with Sustainable Duke and environmental friendly student-run organizations across campus, the Services & Sustainability Committee hopes to pursue policy and projects that lead to a greener Duke. While the purview of this committee is expansive, allowing for collaboration with many university department, the Services & Sustainability Committee primarily aims to both improve student services across campus and to better the sustainability efforts on campus.
