UW-Platteville's Office of Sustainability was introduced in the fall of 2012 with the hiring of our first sustainability coordinator. Our mission is to lead our graduates, faculty, staff, and broader community to a more sustainable future. We use our strengths in teaching, research, and public service to explore and advance the ways that we can "meet the needs of the present while also enhancing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

UW-Platteville recognizes the importance of sustainability in our changing world and is working to provide leadership in environmental, social, and economic sustainability to our students and broader community. With the hiring of our coordinator, UW-Platteville joined most other UW System schools in their commitment to campus sustainability.

Planned 2013 activities of the Sustainability Office include:

  • Rolling out one-bin recycling on campus
  • Improving non-motorized transportation infrastructure on campus
  • Coordinating the UW-Platteville shuttle
  • Initiating a new bus that takes students to Chicago and Rockford at campus breaks
  • Organizing Recyclemania 2013
  • Developing a Campus Sustainability Plan
  • Participating in coordinating committees for the Sustainable and Renewable Energy Systems major and the Social and Environmental Justice minor
