The University of Auburn's Office of Sustainability provides tools and resources to help people learn to work and live sustainably: to reduce their impact on the environment while enjoying a full lifestyle.
Through regular workshops, symposia, and informal gatherings, the office acts as a facilitator for multi-disciplinary research across campus and inspiration for incorporating sustainability into all aspects of the activities of the university community. More broadly, the office serves as a regional center for information on sustainability by offering information, referrals, and workshops.
The office collaborates with other units on campus, with extension activities, and city- and state-wide programs. In particular, the office's website is a resource for campus and regional use.
The Office of Sustainability's inter-disciplinary focus is regional, national, and global. The office strives to emphasize the triple bottom line of sustainability — to benefit people, to enable profits to be realized from doing so, and to preserve the planet as a hospitable place for both people and profit.
