We think big and small here in the OS! 

It takes creative thinking and flexibility to effect change.  We track our carbon footprint, try to change behavior and just about everything in between to help make our world a better place to live.  If you have an idea about how to green our campus or our campus community, we want to know.  We welcome collaboration with offices, students, faculty, and staff across the campus.   




n building upon the campus culture and institutional vision/values of Ursinus College, sustainability programming helps to mutually support Ursinus as a leader in liberal arts education and sustainable development.  Taking an actively integral approach to the multidimensional issues involved with sustainability allows all stakeholders to come together in communication, to collaboratively build a better, more sustainable tomorrow.
