Welcome to the Office of Sustainability at UAA!

The University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) Office of Sustainability is dedicated to building a future for UAA and the Great Land through environmentally wise, economically sound, and socially responsible actions.  The office has made great strides to promote sustainability awareness across UAA's campus and in the community since its founding in January of 2009.  In 2011, UAA received an AASHE Bronze Star Award, which is a national benchmark developed by sustainability personnel to assess sustainability progress.  In addition, UAA is the first college in the State of Alaska to be named Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.  For more information about the UAA Office of Sustainability and the importance of sustainability, please take a moment to navigate through the website.  Thank you!
