About HSC Sustainability

Our university’s mission is to “create solutions for a healthier community”. HSC Sustainability within Facilities Management supports that mission by advancing sustainable practices on campus through educational outreach, programs and initiatives, and our own campus operations.


Key Initiatives

The Office of Sustainability was founded in 2012 after the HSC students voted in a fee to fund environmental improvements on campus.  This fee, the Sustainable Campus Fee, helps fund many programs, projects, and events on campus.


Events & Announcements

Our vision is to transform our students and employees into people with a sustainability mindset.  Take action today to make our campus and community healthier and more sustainable.
