Office for Sustainability
The mission of the Office for Sustainability is to lead and collaborate on pan-University efforts to steward the built environment and natural resources on Grounds, engage UVA stakeholders and our local community in sustainability initiatives, and discover innovative, collaborative climate solutions for Grounds and beyond.
Established in 2013, UVA's Office for Sustainability supports university-wide collaborative governance, leadership and implementation of sustainability across Grounds. By partnering with students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community, the office is able to infuse and develop a culture of environmental, economic and social stewardship in alignment with the educational, research, health care and public service mission of the University. We focus on pan-University strategic planning, program and project implementation across impact areas, engagement and communication.
