Welcome to the Sage Project

The Sage Project is a partnership between San Diego State University (SDSU) and a local government in the San Diego region. Students, through their course work, engage in meaningful real-world projects and contribute to pressing social needs in a community in SDSU’s service area.

Students from across the University assist local governments with partner-directed projects that address their livability and sustainability goals.

SDSU students and faculty connect with high-priority, high-need community projects, thereby generating interest and fresh ideas that create momentum and provide real service to the community.

The Sage Project is part of the Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities (EPIC-N) Network, and is based on the highly successful and award winning Sustainable City Year Program at the University of Oregon. Like the project in Oregon, the Sage Project at SDSU engages hundreds of students each year who invest thousands of hours assisting communities in our region as they seek to build a more equitable and sustainable future.

Partner with Sage!

Lemon Grove Cleanup

October 21, 2017, 9:00am - October 21, 2017, 3:00pm

We will be participating in I Love A Clean San Diego’s Lemon Grove Cleanup event on Saturday, October 21st and volunteers are needed. We will be meeting at the driveway in front of the ARC (goo.gl/maps/WzjBezWqgdT2) to carpool at 8:00 and arriving at Civic Center Park, 3200 Main Street, Lemon Grove, CA 91945 around 8:30. Please plan on bringing a reusable water bottle, hat, appropriate shoes and sunscreen. You're also encouraged to bring the items needed to pick up the trash, if you have them available (i.e. gloves, buckets, etc). Because Sage Club doesn’t have shirts yet, try to wear some SDSU gear!

Help San Diego #recycleright by not bagging your recyclables. #KeepItLoose instead. Plastic bags do not belong in your blue bin. Visit your grocery, retail or home improvement store or visit plasticfilmrecycling.org for plastic bag recycling options.
