UF is committed to creating meaningful, reciprocal contributions within the campus and local communities through programs that provide experiential learning, service opportunities and recognition for sustainability champions.
A partnership of the Office of Sustainability and Healthy Gators, the Champions for Change Awards recognize individuals or groups who have made significant contributions in the areas of sustainability and/or health during their time at UF.
As a state land grant university, UF also has a special obligation to meet the demand for sustainable living practices for the residents of Florida’s 67 counties. IFAS/Extension has many award winning resources that facilitate sustainable living.
Getting involved in the Gainesville community is easy too:
The City of Gainesville Sustainability Portal is provided as a resource to learn about and make it easier to get involved with the efforts to make this a more livable and sustainable city. [/expand]
The Green Team Network serves as a supportive community for sustainable change at the department and unit level at UF. By actively participating in the meetings, trainings, and gatherings, individuals have the opportunity to learn and share experiences with fellow Green Team members and help UF realize its vision for a sustainable UF.
