Although almost every organization on campus is engaged in sustainability efforts, the President’s Sustainability Action Committee, or PSAC, is the major group on Truman’s campus that initiates and coordinates sustainability practices.
The President’s Sustainability Action Committee has spearheaded the Sustainability movement at Truman more recently. Some of the committee’s responsibilities are to:
- Identify and evaluate ways to modify university practices to help them align with the principles of the Sustainability Initiative.
- Track the current state of sustainability related practices and develop a practical benchmark for assessing total progress.
- Provide regular advice to the University President regarding suggested best practices.
- Present an annual report of its activities to the University President that records progress on practices of interest and indicates future plans.

The Committee is currently implementing the objectives outlined in the PSAC Strategic Goals and Initiatives – public.
