Sustainability on Campus

The Office of Sustainability was established under Facilities Management in 2011. We define sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

The Office of Sustainability utilizes United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to connect students’ education to transdisciplinary application in order to create a more sustainable world.

UT Dallas is a member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and measures holistic effectiveness according to AASHE’s Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, & Rating System (STARS) Report which encompasses administration, academics, engagement, and operations.
