Sustainability Resources

UTRGV is at the forefront for academics, research, engagement, and operations related to educating for sustainable development and the institution's family shows its value to our university by embedding it in the strategic plan.

The ultimate goal of education in sustainable development is to improve the quality of life for its community and for the world, providing the same quality for generations to come. Career training helps students research green jobs, get internships and conduct a job search for a full-time position, which will enable them to integrate sustainability concepts into their field of work.

To integrate sustainable development principles into personal and public decision-making, it is important to imbed these principles into our academics to affect the region and planet. The Office for Sustainability is empowering faculty to incorporate sustainability within their curriculum through the annual ICSAC conference.  

Additional resources for integrating sustainability into existing courses, or new sustainability focused/related course development are available through OFS participation in several organizations. Explore examples of sustainability courses in our undergraduate and graduate catalogs.   Stop by for a chat about the courses you would like to teach!

UTRGV is educating students and staff to make sustainability-minded everyday choices that effect their local environment, economy, and social resources.  The university's eleven colleges and schools all participate in new and innovative curriculum, cutting edge research, student service learning incorporation, and growing green operations.
