Boston University is a world leader in teaching, research, and scholarship that seeks to promote the well-being of humans within their natural environment. The University has made important contributions in public policy, science, business, education, public health, law, medicine, the humanities, and engineering. Through these advances, including some of the nation’s preeminent environmental programs, the University hopes to prepare this generation to lead our society toward a more sustainable future.

University Sustainability has a broad scope in implementing its fundamental goal: to reduce the University’s environmental footprint through campus infrastructure upgrades and by connecting students, faculty, and staff to participate in and support these efforts.

We encourage our residents across the University to access the sustainability site to get up-to-date information on University programs in this area, and to share information, whether for a newly-offered class, current research, an opportunity for resource savings or waste reduction, or new grass-roots efforts.
