Sustainability is integral to campus culture at UNO. Five years ago, campus representatives came together to map out a campus-wide Sustainability Master Plan.
This year, UNO leaders are preparing to update this plan and, as part of that effort, want to understand what sustainability means to you by taking the 2019 Campus Sustainability Engagement Survey.
Below is a message from Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., which was sent to all students, faculty and staff on Monday, Feb. 11, about this effort and how you can help.
As members of the UNO community you each have a vital role to play in creating a safe and supportive campus environment, not just for those of us who live, work, and attend classes today, but for the next generation as well.
One of the most important ways to achieve this goal is through engagement in sustainable practices. Over the years, UNO has been committed to improving its environmental footprint and impact through everything from waste reduction programs to academic programming, just to name a few of the many efforts being led and supported by each of you.
To help us continue these important efforts, our Office of Sustainability and campus Sustainability Committee have partnered with the Verdis Group, a nationally-recognized and Omaha-based firm dedicated to strategic sustainability planning, to update our Sustainability Plan.
The first step in this important project requires your help. Please take the time to complete this Sustainability Engagement Survey to better understand what sustainability at UNO means to you.
With your help, we can ensure that UNO maintains its role as an environmental steward well into the future.
Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D.
