About UWT Sustainability

Sustainability at UW Tacoma encompasses the environmental, economic and social impacts of our 46-acre, urban-serving university campus. The present and future well-being of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the larger community are inextricably linked to how we manage finite resources.

Sustainability at UW Tacoma is concerned with the micro and the macro. From composting strategies to combatting science illiteracy, the sustainability ethos can be found in facility management, curriculum design and student activism. Explore this site and learn how you can get involved!
