The sustainability action team (SAT) program is a series of initiatives that promote sustainability and energy savings. You can get  involved by contacting the sustainability office - we can help you connect with your colleagues already involved, or help you set up a team of your own. 

Green offices

The Green Office (GO!) Program is specifically designed to promote sustainability with staff in offices across campus.

Our GO! program includes:

  • the opportunity to connect with other sustainability leaders across campus,
  • team competitions for most sustainability actions pledged and taken,
  • rewards and recognition,
  • funding for the for workshops, luncheons, communications, at the institutional level, and for sustainability initiatives initiated by groups themselves
