Who Are We?

University Of Toronto’s Student Environmental Resource Network

The University of Toronto’s Student Environmental Resource Network (UTERN) is a levy organization that operates as a funding body and networking hub for any person, group or club within the university community interested in sustainability and environmentalism on campus.

Students are members of UTERN and can run for executive positions, apply for funding, and use our Dish Rental Service if they have paid a levy for at least one semester of that year.

All full-time undergraduate students at UTSG, UTM, and UTSC as well as all full-time and part-time graduate students automatically pay the levy of $0.25/term, or $0.18/term for part-time to the student union.

UTERN membership is open to all students, faculty, staff and alumni from any of the three campuses at the University of Toronto. Visit our Policy page to view our constitution and mandate.

Meet the Team!

We are thrilled to present our executive team for the 2021-2022 year!

The UTERN team works to support environmental projects & initiatives within the University of Toronto by providing funding for students by students, to promote campus-wide environmental praxis and sustainability.

UTERN hosts general elections near the end of the spring every academic year. For any executive positions that remain available, a by-election is held at the start of the Fall semester. A description of UTERN Executive Positions can be found here.
