Sustainability Plan

UW-Platteville developed a sustainability plan over the course of the 2013-2014 year. Over 60 stakeholders helped inform the outcome of this plan and the final plan was endorsed unanimously by all four primary governance bodies at UW-Platteville (Academic Staff Senate, Classified Staff Senate, Faculty Senate, Student Senate).

The plan is aligned with the University Strategic plan and identifies baseline sustainability information for campus classified by the following topics:

  1. Administration & Coordination
  2. Academics
  3. Buildings
  4. Community & Culture
  5. Energy
  6. Food 
  7. Grounds & Land Use
  8. Solid Waste 
  9. Transportation 
  10. Water 

This plan will guide the efforts and direction of our Sustainability Office and campus sustainability initiatives for their first 3-5 years. During that time, the Environmental Sustainability Committee will select annual priorities based upon actions identified in this plan. During or before 2017, the Committee will review and update the entire plan.
