Welcome to the Student Environmental Center

Student Environmental Center Logo


The Student Environmental Center at UNC Asheville is a student-funded student-run department that seeks to engage students, faculty, staff, and the Asheville community in conversation and action around environmental issues. We are a campus resource for information related to environmental stewardship, university sustainability, and community outreach.

To achieve these goals, the SEC provides a home for passionate students from a variety of backgrounds to gain education on environmental issues. Our focus on peer-to-peer education fosters an environment for individual empowerment where we can create and maintain projects which promote sustainability on our campus. The SEC supports on campus and community events and promotes sustainability initiatives by investing time and funds into these projects.

How to Reach Us

Our office is located in Room 218 of Highsmith Student Union. We are down the hallway to the left of the ACE office. Our staff hold regular open office hours, which are posted on the door, so there will often be someone around to help you out!

For inquiries about project ideas, green grants, and ways to get involved, email us at sec@unca.edu and one of our co-directors will be happy to get in touch.
