Take action to decarbonize your life

The Office of Sustainability’s Green Living Certification program is for students interested in connecting how we live and what we buy with climate action. 

Each Fall Semester, the Office of Sustainability hosts an eight-week interactive challenge to push you to the highest level of sustainable living in seven different focus areas: energy, water, food and dining, purchasing, zero waste, involvement, and innovation.  

Model behavior and lead the change

Work directly with the Office of Sustainability’s Green Living EcoLeads for real-time coaching and feedback. You’ll meet weekly with eco-minded peers to share your journey and build a more sustainable campus community. You’ll get tools and resources to transform your mindset and your living space to maximize personal growth and minimize ecological impact.

You'll dive deep into the most pressing issues in sustainability and get connected to local organizations tackling these challenges both on campus and around the city. Green Living is the roadmap for sustainable action on campus and a gateway to other leadership development opportunities through our peer education program, EcoReps.

This year's cohort is just for students living on-campus, but anyone can participate by using the resource guides below and taking action to green your life in all seven focus areas.
