Sacramento State Partners with Keep America Beautiful
First Collegiate Affiliate for Nonprofit


Keep America Beautiful intends to use its formalized partnership with Sacramento State to develop an extensive "campus affiliate" model that can be adopted at colleges and universities across the nation to engage and empower the next generation of community stewards.

Sacramento State University has partnered with Keep America Beautiful, a nonprofit that works to make communities clean, green and beautiful. Sac State Sustainability is the first collegiate affiliate for the organization.

"Sacramento State has long been recognized as a leader in promoting environmental sustainability, and now the university has added another item to its long list of distinctions: the first college campus in the nation to be an official Keep America Beautiful affiliate," said Helen Lowman, president and CEO, Keep America Beautiful. "As part of the Keep America Beautiful Affiliate Network, Sac State Sustainability is acting as a catalyst for positive community change, with the goal of improving the quality of life for the university community, including its students, faculty and administrators."

Through the partnership, students will continue to have access to volunteer and internship opportunities through Keep California Beautiful and its other partners. The university also will be able to share data from student and faculty research, as well as tap into additional resources such as grants, research and programmatic resources available through Keep America Beautiful.

"We're committed to keeping California beautiful," said Sacramento State President Robert S. Nelsen. "Whether it's biofuel - if you don't finish something on your plate today, it's going to be gasoline tomorrow in our buses around campus - or whether it's chipping the trees that fall down, or whether it's helping pick up litter, we are here to make certain that we have a sustainable campus and a sustainable world."
