Sustainability Advocates

The mission of the UVA Sustainability Advocates (SA) Program is to link the Office for Sustainability to the student body and to use our ideas and projects to instill knowledge, empower students, and create sustainable lifestyle changes. The SA Program allows volunteers to develop an understanding of energy & water conservation, recycling, and other green habits. They promote these issues in their residence area and throughout the University, act as a source of information for their peers, and help to foster a sense of community and stewardship for the planet.


The SA program has closed applications for the spring semester. We will begin recruitment for Fall 2021 in late August.
