Sustainability Advisory Council
Call for expressions of interest
In 2020, the university committed to a five-year sustainability plan (SFU 2025) to mobilize the entire institution to address the global climate crisis. The plan includes three overarching goals and 16 climate action targets to reduce the university’s carbon footprint.

To help govern this work and ensure sustainability initiatives are implemented based on the plans guiding principles, we invite SFU community members to submit an expression of interest to serve on the Sustainability Advisory Council.

Statement of interest

Please include a brief statement (no more than 400 words) describing your interest in serving on the Sustainability Advisory Council, including responses to the following:

  • Why are you interested in serving on the Sustainability Advisory Council?
  • What would you like to contribute to the Sustainability Advisory Council? This can include, but is not limited to, skills, knowledge, lived experience, passion, etc. that you believe are relevant to the Sustainability Advisory Council's mandate.
  • Self identification is optional yet helpful in creating a diverse council that is representative of SFU’s population.

Why we are asking you to self identify

Universities like SFU originate from eurocentrism, colonialism and bureaucracies that reinforce systems of power and privilege and leave many on the margins.The Sustainability Office is committed to disrupting colonial narratives and addressing reconciliation, equity, diversity, and inclusion in its work.

To capture diverse community perspectives, individuals of all identities and communities are welcome to become members. In particular, participation of people from communities marginalized by environmental interventions and/or disproportionately impacted by climate change, including but not limited to Indigenous and Black communities, people living with disabilities and neurodiversity, female identified persons, and people who identify as LGBTQ2SAI+.

Q7 .     Response
If the March 30th deadline is not possible and/or you require support or assistance in submitting your information please email Candace Le Roy at or call 604.377.6206 and we will do our very best to eliminate any barriers to your application process.

This is only one of many opportunities to participate in SFU's sustainability co-design, implementation, and co-evaluation processes and if for any reason you are not able to join the Council now, or are not selected, please know that there will be other opportunities including community forums, advisor roles, and surveys in the near future.

We have endeavoured to make the process as accessible, safe, and inclusive as possible. If, however you see opportunities for improvements please do not hesitate to provide us with this feedback at
