At the University of California, Santa Barbara, we envision a future where we have little to no impact on the environment, and everyone is engaged in sustainability. We are committed to fostering a culture of sustainability through campus-wide sustainability efforts, program development, and promulgating the sustainability work of staff, faculty, and students – our greatest renewable resource. UCSB strives to capitalize on our position as an institution of higher education to ensure that all students understand the interconnectedness of environmental, economic, and social systems and to communicate that we each have a role to play in sustainability.
In order to achieve this vision, UC Santa Barbara continues to prioritize and monitor the implementation and progress of its sustainability initiatives. We encourage and coordinate the efforts of our faculty, staff, and students who are the front line of positive change by taking action today for a better tomorrow. By working with all sectors of the campus community, we look forward to helping UCSB maintain its leadership and attain its shared vision of a sustainable future.
