Welcome to the UIC Office of Sustainability

The Office of Sustainability coordinates initiatives on campus that bring UIC towards greater social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Our current initiatives are focused on improvements to campus-wide recycling, active transportation options, and energy efficiency; all are strategies in UIC’s first Climate Action Plan. We are also working on expanding the meaning of sustainability through our Sustainable Strategic Thinking Process.

Through outreach, education, and partnerships, we are able to collect information, act as a resource to the UIC community, and help facilitate improvements to the campus that reduce our university’s impacts on the environment (while also improving the educational atmosphere and our fiscal bottom line).

Use this website to learn about upcoming events, participate in the discussion, or find out what UIC is doing to become a more sustainable institution.
