Mission Statement


The UNA Center for Sustainability is a unique interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary organization that fosters pedagogy, research and scholarship, awareness, and development initiatives in all aspects of sustainability. The Center is inclusive of the broadest range of disciplines, and draws strength and credibility through its diversity. The Center includes learning and understanding of sustainability issues at the local, state, national and global scales and seeks their solutions. We seek to learn how to learn and make decisions in our rapidly-changing world.  The Center works with all elements of the academic and surrounding community, including students, faculty, and staff to promote an understanding and awareness of sustainability issues by coordinating informational presentations and promoting energy and water conservation, waste minimization, recycling, sustainable building and landscape design, alternative transportation, and procurement of green products.
