About Us image

Uplifting people and planet, inside the classroom and beyond.

Join a growing community of educators, researchers and changemakers. You came to the University of Alberta to change the world—we provide programs and services to help you make the world safer, greener and more just.

Whether you’re an undergrad, graduate student, staff or faculty, you can take advantage of funding, leadership programs, research opportunities and more.

The campus sustainability initiative includes administrative offices, academics and student services across all five university campuses. Together, we are:

  • Spreading knowledge about social and environmental challenges.
  • Empowering you to take action, and teaching you how to get your peers engaged too.
  • Networking and fostering leadership within the university, so that we can take bold steps forward together.
  • Connecting university workers with researchers and students to test technological and social innovations in a “living laboratory.”

Note: The Office of Sustainability is undergoing a transition. For more information, please email sustainability@ualberta.ca
