Our Sustainability Story — The Latest Chapter

Sustainability efforts at Auburn can be found enhancing all areas of the university’s mission: research, instruction, and outreach, and are being implemented throughout the university’s operations.  We’re pleased to provide this overview of just some of the many efforts underway.  These varied programs, initiatives, and people represent the larger passion and commitment to sustainability that exist within the Auburn Family, both on campus and around the world. We hope the stories offered here will serve as a powerful reminder of the ability we each possess to help create a sustainable world.

If you’re short on time, you can view our story in each respective area: academics, engagement, operations, and planning & administration.  Of course, if you’re interested in learning more about these, or other campus sustainability efforts, we encourage you to contact our office.  Thank you for watching!

We would be remiss not to acknowledge the support of the many colleges, departments, and units that provided the Office of Sustainability with descriptions, facts, and photos of their respective efforts, without which this update wouldn’t have been possible. We would also like to give special recognition to our summer and fall intern, Chelsea Roadman, who graduated in December 2014 with a degree in Public Relations.   Chelsea applied her immense skills, talent, and creativity in a myriad of ways to bring our Sustainability Story to life.
