Campus Sustainability

The term campus sustainability is often thought of in terms of improving campus operations—from reducing energy & GHG to reducing waste to serving sustainable food. Improvements in operations are important, of course, but the term campus sustainability has taken on a much broader meaning that integrates curriculum & research, operations, planning & administration, and community engagement.

This section deals with sustainability in higher education; if your primary interest is in K–12 schools, there is a separate section on Sustainability in Schools.
