As a member of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville community, you have a gift: the opportunity to make our campus a more sustainable place, simply through the actions that you choose to take.

Much like higher education, sustainability is about investing in the future. Sustainability is fundamentally about helping make sure that we don't deplete the resources needed by the humans of tomorrow. It is not a state that we can simply “achieve," but it is a way of life that we constantly can work to improve upon.

UW-Platteville's sustainability work is rooted in the concept that you can strive to live sustainably and, through doing so, have a positive impact on your own life, our campus, and the entire planet.

To this end, the UW-Platteville Office of Sustainability works across campus to educate and build awareness of sustainability, inspire and motivate our community to be sustainable, and research and implement best sustainability practices in our campus operations.
