Welcome to Sustainability

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” – John Muir

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro established sustainability as one of its five Core Values through the 2009 Strategic Plan.  The University views sustainability as: Academics, operations, and outreach… conducted with careful attention to the enduring interconnectedness of social equity, the environment, the economy, and aesthetics. Recognizing that sustainability is a process, we at UNCG constantly seek to improve our operations and to provide projects and services that enhance the environmental, human, and financial capital of the University and our community.

From requiring all new building and major renovation projects to attain LEED Silver standards to offering a variety of transportation options, and from operating a comprehensive recycling program to creating several community engagement programs, UNCG has already made great strides on the path of sustainability.  If you would like to learn more about current initiatives and future plans, please use the links at the top of the page.
