Office of Sustainability
The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth’s mission is to “create solutions for a healthier community”. The Office of Sustainability within Facilities Management supports that mission by advancing sustainable practices on campus through educational outreach, events, and our own campus operations. We partner with various departments and persons on campus and within our community.
The Office of Sustainability was founded in 2012 after the HSC students voted in a fee to fund environmental improvements on campus. This fee funds sustainability initiatives and projects such as the HSC Community Garden, bottle filling stations, EV charging stations, and much more. Before the Office of Sustainability was founded, the campus (through Facilities Management) had been implementing strategies to be good stewards of our resources. These initiatives include reducing energy usage, conserving water, and recycling to name a few. Learn what our campus is doing to be sustainable and get involved in the efforts!
