Committees & Student Organizations

Campus sustainability is a team effort. The Office of Sustainability is just one of many groups doing the hard work around campus. If you’re interested in getting involved but don’t know how, these committees and student organizations are a great place to start.

The mission of the Committee on the Campus Environment is to promote environmental sustainability at UT, including but not limited to promoting reductions in the University’s carbon emissions, other pollutants, waste, and the consumption of resources.
