Make a Difference as a Student

Students can make a difference in so many ways. Inquire about research projects with instructors, join the Students for Sustainability group, or go beyond the borders of UFV and get involved in your community!


Student Research

The University of the Fraser Valley is open to supporting student's research proposals regarding sustainability. Upper level students can design and propose research projects. Once approved, a supervisor (faculty member) is designated, and the project can begin.

UFV Garden Club

UFV's student-run Garden Club brings one of the Fraser Valley's most important exports right onto campus. Not only do they grow vegetables and other edibles, but also promote sustainable agriculture through planting days and community dinners. 

Currently, the garden is outside of U-House (building F). There is hope to expand in the future. Check them out on Facebook, and feel free to stop by the gardens and grab some of whatever happens to be growing!
