Who We Are
The Office of Campus and Community Sustainability at UMass Dartmouth, otherwise known as the Sustainability Office, organizes intellectual working space for the vibrant, disparate, network of interests and activities related to sustainability that exists on campus and in the region.
What We Do
Our primary goals are to assist with sustainability efforts in operations on the campus, establish academic programs that advance the knowledge of sustainability, increase the grants funds and research opportunities awarded to the University and forge community partnerships. We spark regional conversations and events spotlighting sustainable practices and technologies.
History of the Office
The Sustainability Office was proposed in 2006 by faculty, staff, and student members of the Sustainability Committee (chartered on April 17, 2007 by Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack and Provost Thomas J. Curry). Given this inspiring charge, students, staff and faculty formed an oversight committee and four subcommittees dedicated to infusing the sustainability principles in four major areas of campus activity: Curriculum, Research, Public Service, and Facilities/Operations.
The Sustainability Office is currently sited in the College of Engineering, Textiles Building #206.
