Resilient CSUSB Plan

Def. resilience - Resilience is the ability of a system or community to survive disruption and to anticipate, adapt, and flourish in the face of change.

With a vision to build, operate, and nurture a healthier more resilient community for the San Bernardino and Palm Desert campuses, the emerging Office of Sustainability will facilitate the building of the Resilient CSUSB Plan.  Through campus wide engagement the plan will be built around Roadmaps focused on Energy, Water, Food & Waste, Education & Sustainable Community, Transportation & Mobility, and Land Use & Buildings. Through our campus outreach specific strategies, actions, timeframes, and resources will be identified and incorporated into the tactical Roadmaps by the associated Working Groups, refined by the Sustainability Taskforce, and formulated into an actionable platform by the Office of Sustainability. Using the campus Strategic Plan and current system wide policy as a foundation the plan will employ the triple bottom line (Economy, Environment, and Equity/Community) to provide a balanced approach as we look at specific strategies. The planning process will incorporate stretch goals like Net Zero/Net Positive targets. The Resilient CSUSB Portal will provide ongoing reporting, intake of new ideas and points of refinement, and educational and programmatic outreach to keep the plan vital and successful (Anticipated launch Spring 2018).
