Model of Campus Sustainability

The University of Ottawa’s Sustainable Development Committee (SUDCOM) has adopted the 4C model of campus sustainability developed by Plymouth University to address different aspects of sustainability specific to a campus context. 

The 4 Cs are:

  • Campus — Everything involving procurement for and the physical aspects of the campus, from buying to building, repairing, and everything in-between.
  • Community — The social relationships between community members on and off of the campus.
  • Culture — The values and policies forming the cultural foundation and influencing the governance of the campus.
  • Curriculum — The academic pursuits, the courses and the research activities that constitute the body of knowledge on campus.
