Environmental Leadership Awards

Each year, the Office of Sustainability and the Committee on the Campus Environment (CCE) come together to celebrate environmental leadership in the UT community through the Environmental Leadership Awards. We look to recognize students, faculty and staff members, and outstanding members of the greater Knoxville community who help to Make Orange Green.

Nominations for the 2018 Environmental Leadership Awards will be accepted through the online form until March 6th!. The CCE will review and vote on these nominations, and the awards will be presented at the Environmental Leadership Awards Banquet on Wednesday, April 11th
