Engaging All Members of our UVA Community

UVA’s sustainability framework is built upon interdepartmental and interdisciplinary connections at all levels of the University to ENGAGE our community in sustainability action and equity, STEWARD our resources on Grounds and beyond, and DISCOVER solutions to local and global challenges through research and curriculum.


The University will educate and engage its students, faculty, staff and the larger community; contribute to knowledge through research; promote health and well-being; and foster public service related to these sustainability principles.


Partner with the community to accelerate collaborative initiatives to advance sustainable, equitable and healthy places for all.
