Welcome to the Office of Sustainability


The mission of the UNCG Sustainability Office is to encourage and support development and implementation of sustainable practices in administrative units of the university and create a meaningful link between academics and operations that supports use of the campus as a teaching laboratory.


Our vision is a campus that functions to its full sustainable potential, and culture that fosters the creation of sustainably-minded leaders who can create solutions to global challenges.


UNCG defines its core value of sustainability as, “Academics, operations, and outreach… conducted with careful attention to the enduring interconnectedness of social equity, the environment, the economy, and aesthetics.”
