About Us

The DSU Sustainability Office (DSUSO) was launched in 2007 due to demand from students. Since then, the Office has played an increasingly important role in improving, instilling and fostering sustainable operations and vision within the Union and beyond. 

The Dalhousie Student Union Sustainability Office (DSUSO) strives to create a culture of sustainability within DSU Operations and at Dalhousie University. They seek to improve our university community by making the DSU an ecologically aware, economically responsible, socially equitable institution. To encourage communication within the Dalhousie student community, DSUSO acts as a hub to identify, assess, and address challenges of environmental sustainability on campus.
