The Office of Sustainability aims to foster sustainable development and to promote environmental stewardship at the University by strategically bridging the gap between campus operations, teaching, research, and outreach. Office staff work to reduce UT's environmental impact and integrate recycling, conservation, and other sustainability best practices into campus and community culture.
The Office of Sustainability coordinates and advances sustainability activities through campus initiatives and “Make Orange Green” programs, working in tandem with the Chancellor’s office and our own Recycling unit, along with other various campus organizations, departments, and student groups. Both awareness and action are nurtured through these activities. Data collation and analysis of campus energy data, carbon emission data, and utility use is also maintained through this office.
