The Office of Sustainability’s mission is to lead the integration of sustainability into the University of Oregon’s operations, curriculum, co-curriculum, research, and engagement with the community. We accomplish this by maintaining a diverse portfolio of activities that are organized into the following five focus areas. 


Provide strategic advice, information and resources to faculty, staff and students working to integrate sustainability practices and policies into their programming.

Policy Development

Develop policies that promote environmentally-sensitive behavior by campus users and responsible development and stewardship of campus assets.

Projects & Programs

Create, implement and manage innovative programs and events, in partnership with other campus units whenever possible.


Establish metrics and track institutional sustainability performance.


Share the University's sustainability story and encourage the campus community to support the growth and success of sustainable practices.
