Get Involved

Everyone in the University of Wisconsin-Platteville community is encouraged to help make UW-Platteville reach its goals of sustainability and awareness of our impacts on the planet.

Green Fund

We are excited to announce the third annual UW-Platteville Green Fund competition. Formerly referred to as the Campus Sustainability Fund, this competitive grant program will distribute $15,000 to UW-Platteville students, faculty, and staff to support projects that enhance the sustainability of campus.

Projects will be evaluated on how well they meet the UW-Platteville sustainability mission to "meet the needs of the present while enhancing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

Green Guide

Sustainability means leaving our home in better shape than we found it. In this guide we suggest simple ways to practice sustainability. The suggestions help you consider the environmental, social, and economic implications of our most basic daily actions. Review the Green Guide.

Service Nights

Have fun, meet new friends, and make a difference!

The UW-Platteville Sustainability Office has weekly service nights to help beautify and make campus more sustainable. Contribute your time and skills to make a difference! Our projects will vary from week to week and depending upon the weather, but they will run the gamut from outdoor work in the edible garden to collecting prairie seeds to crafting projects. There is room for all backgrounds, interests, and abilities in our sustainability efforts! All events will have a member of our Sustainability Office present. Any questions can be directed to Mary Penn at pennm@uwplatt.edu or 608.342.7238

We meet every Thursday from 4 p.m.–5:30 p.m. in the Campus Edible Garden between Royce and McGregor Halls and from there may head elsewhere depending upon the night's plans. We do ask that you register at least four hours before each event; this will help us make sure that we have the right materials and supplies prepared and will help assure that the event makes the best possible use of your time
