Sustainability isn’t a concept. It’s our culture.

At the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, you’ll do so much more than learn about sustainability in textbooks and lectures. You can save an endangered species of snake with our biology department, or design systems that change the future with environmental engineering. Maybe you’ll discover your own path with the help of our engaged faculty and staff. No matter your path, you’ll put it into practice through our state-of-the-art labs and our acres of woods, prairies, and waterways dedicated to ecological, social, and economic research.

Outside of academics, you’ll find many ways to go green, all made simple and accessible thanks to innovate practices and research led by UW-Platteville faculty, staff, and students. This includes everything from growing and serving our own produce on campus, to reduced water and plastic use in our food service, to public transportation, community gardens, and more. Many of these efforts involve outside partnerships, creating a unique connection with the community you’ll call home. 

Sustainability isn’t a concept. It’s our culture.
