Xavier Student Sustainability (XSS) provides students with the opportunity to create tangible change on Xavier University's campus in relation to sustainable issues. XSS is now run through the Dorothy Day Center for Faith and Justice. It will serve as the main student connection to the Sustainability Committee as well as a key educator of sustainable efforts geared towards the student body. Membership is open to all Xavier students!
