Sustainability at Webster University
Improving campus and community sustainability through education, outreach, engagement, and sustainable operations
[Find the 2015 Sustainability Conference schedule here]
The drive to become a more sustainable campus was a priority for President Stroble upon her arrival in 2009. Since then the university community has undertaken significant steps to reduce our impact on the environment, improve campus engagement for sustainability, and support long-term fiscal and community health. The Sustainability Coalition was charged by Provost Schuster to form an entity that would facilitate and support sustainability activities on and from Webster campus and build our capacity to be more sustainable in our practices, education, and outreach. We hope that you will take advantage of opportunities to become involved with sustainability by attending events, joining the coalition, or submitting your ideas for ways to become a more sustainable university.
