Sustainability

Collaborating with students, faculty and staff to make Ursinus a greener place to study, work, and live. 

The mission of the Office of Sustainability is to facilitate the integration of environmental stewardship at Ursinus College and within local communities, on a foundation of social equity and economic viability. To achieve that mission, the Office of Sustainability works with faculty, staff, administrators, and community partners, but foremost, the Office of Sustainability provides opportunities for students to be thoughtful, responsible, creative leaders in their society.

We are everywhere on campus!  If you have any questions about sustainability or how we can help you get your green on, please come visit us, email or call.  We are here to help you have a more sustainable experience on campus.
