  • Sustainability at KU
  • Overview

We can use sustainability as a critical filter to evaluate campus operations such as energy usage, waste management and stream flows within the built and natural environment. As an institution of higher education, the University of Kansas can make a significant contribution to a sustainable future for our campus, our community, and beyond. The University's pursuit of a sustainable future creates new opportunities for cross-curricular learning and research as well as responsible environmental, fiscal and social operations on campus. Through the development of research teams, student research projects, service learning courses, and a campus-wide network of sustainability ambassadors, the Center for Sustainability continues to work within the campus community to find collaborative solutions to sustainability challenges that face our campus and the global community.
