Get Involved

Members of the UNC Charlotte community are important contributors to campus sustainability. Here are some ways the Sustainability Office can help.


The Office of Sustainability maintains a list of current events where you can learn, meet, join, make, play, and taste.


Learn and contribute in many ways and many levels of commitment.


The university is currently piloting a Green Workplace Program to replace the Green Office Program. Departments and units will be guided through a self-assessment of the operations and get advice on how to improve their practices to reduce waste, conserve energy, improve purchasing, and maintain a safe and healthy workplace.

For individual employees, the university is launching a new Sustainability Ambassador Program. This professional development opportunity will allow employees to learn about university sustainability goals, successes, and challenges through monthly learning opportunities. Participants will meet campus sustainability leaders, get behind-the-scenes tours, and contribute to a project that supports their unit or the campus.


Explore teaching topics and techniques with “Sustainability in the Curriculum” workshops. Since 2015, the Office of Sustainability has organized two-day workshops in May. Over 70 faculty participants have worked on incorporating sustainability concepts into their courses and degree programs.
