Green Labs Committee

  • Green Labs Logo

    The UIC Green Labs Committee is open to anyone that wants to make their research lab more sustainable- from undergraduate students to professors to building operations managers.

    The committee meets bimonthly, alternating between East and West Campuses. Check the events page for upcoming meetings!


    The UIC Green Labs Committee is dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of scientific research without impeding progress of the research. The Green Labs Committee will create an environment for research in which sustainable practices and policies are well communicated and are visible to all.


    The UIC Green Labs Committee will be the leaders in creating and communicating more sustainable research methods to increase energy efficiency and reduce solid wastes.
