The University of Louisville is committed to integrating sustainability into everything we do - from how we manage our facilities, finances and people to what we teach in the classroom and what we research in the lab.

Our vision is to create a university that is itself a living laboratory for sustainability and a campus community that leads by example and educates as much by what we do as by what we say.

Our goal is to make decisions which reflect a balanced consideration for environmental, social and economic responsibility and to continually learn as we go.

Creating a more sustainable UofL is a dynamic, multi-faceted, long-term process. We have come a long way, but we recognize that there is still plenty of good work to be done. As President Neeli Bendapudi said in 2019,UofL’s unwavering commitment to the health of our planet is another reason to be proud of this institution, but this is not the time to remain idle."

We invite you to learn more about our on-going UofL sustainability initiatives and to explore the many ways you can get involved and help us create a better world right here, right now.
