Residence Life Sustainability
Sustainability: perpetual and cooperative environmental, social, and economic systems
Residence Life seeks to cultivate sustainable communities that are environmentally aware, socially conscious, and fiscally responsible. Whenever possible, we will incorporate alternative practices and procedures to minimize impact on the earth. We believe that the environment is a priority that is essential to the personal growth of students and staff, and to their success in an increasingly global world.
We are committed to:
- Teach and model sustainability
- Actively work to reduce our carbon footprint and energy consumption
- Actively work to reduce our water consumption
- Develop and implement programs aimed at climate neutrality
As part of our commitment to sustainability, we regularly partner with the following offices/organizations. More information can be found at their websites:
The UA Office of Sustainability
Students for Sustainability (student government)
We have also created a "green" things to bring list to help you pack for your sustainable life in college.
