University of Oregon

University of Oregon Sustainability Programs”

University of Oregon logoSustainability is second nature at the University of Oregon. Cross-campus collaboration to build sustainable cities and implementation of green product design are two of the university’s five “Big Ideas” – standards that help shape the UO’s future. Our commitment to sustainability is evident in UO programs around the globe – from Ecuador to Europe, and from Canada to China. The UO curriculum also focuses sharply on sustainability, in the arts and sciences as well as the professional colleges.  Likewise, many of UO’s study abroad programs have strong sustainability elements.

Innovation is apparent in the UO’s integration of sustainability research and practice.  The Sustainable Cities Initiative (SCI) is an interdisciplinary laboratory for nurturing sustainable approaches in urban settings. SCI’s Sustainable City Year Program focuses on a specific project in a specific city, taking an interdisciplinary group of students and faculty through three terms of courses and applied work in the chosen laboratory (Oregon cities that apply to the program).

Congratulations to the University of Oregon for being selected as a 2012 Finalist of the Innovation in Sustainability Award!
