Office of Sustainability

About the Office of Sustainability


Our 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 through a number of programs and partnerships that: 

  • Provide strategic advice, information and resources to faculty, staff and students working to integrate sustainability practices and policies into their programming;
  • Develop policies that promote environmentally-sensitive behavior by campus users and responsible development and stewardship of campus assets;
  • 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.
