Green Cleaning


The University of Tennessee is dedicated to a clean, safe, and accessible study and work environment. In order to achieve these things, we have a Green Cleaning Program. The program began at the university in 2006 when we became the first university in the nation to be Green Seal Cleaning Certified.

The program and the practices have only grown since their inception. Because of our commitment to green cleaning, the university has been able to create a safer environment, increase recycling and zero-waste practices, and create a more sustainable method for keeping our campus clean, safe, and accessible – all the while, reducing our impact on the environment.


The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
