Housed in the Bullitt Center, the Center for Environmental Justice and Sustainability (CEJS) will inspire and prepare a generation of leaders to meet the unprecedented ethical challenge facing humankind in the early 21st century: forging a sustainable relationship between humankind and planet Earth, and doing so in ways that foster justice within and between societies.

As part of our Earth Week celebration, the CEJS
donated 110 copies of Dr. Seuss’s beloved book The Lorax to students
at Bailey Gatzert Elementary School. SU students tutor at the school throughout
the year via Seattle University’s Youth
Initiative. By supporting environmental literacy with Seattle Public
Schools, the Center aims to promote both environmental justice and student
interest in environmental science and engineering. Please click here for photos.
