The UTRGV Office for Sustainability aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in recognition of the diverse factors that contribute in sustaining a quality of life on our planet. As the University grows and expands, it is within our interest that every department, college, office, and organization identify their own contributions for sustainable development. Using the 17 Goals as a guideline makes it easy to see that every organization and department serves important contributions to our institution. Collaborating with our unique contributions and promoting communication and partnership across departments and organizations, moves us a step closer to our goals for sustainable development!

The Office for Sustainability celebrates the endeavors of community organizations, campus departments, faculty, students, and staff in the way they incorporate sustainable development into every facet of their activities.
