Office of Campus Sustainability
The Office of Campus Sustainability is housed in the Javelina House on Santa Gertrudis Blvd. The door is always open to students, faculty, staff, administrators and the Kingsville community. Sustainability encompasses every aspect of human endeavor, so that means everyone is included and everyone can get involved!
The office serves the campus community by inspiring and facilitating sustainability initiatives, aside from the many excellent research and teaching programs already occurring in academic units throughout the university. Our aspiration is that a strong and vibrant office will represent the importance that Texas A & M University-Kingsville places on being a State of Texas leader in university sustainability! A strong and vibrant office supports a culture of sustainability, meaning that our campus community recognizes our responsibility to practice sustainability habits in everyday life and understands the impact that such actions have on the local, regional, national and global communities.
The office facilitates the implementation of the University Sustainability Plan, including the enhancement of academic learning and research, service learning, student engagement, awareness, and campus operations. We support the efforts of all campus entities working for social equity, reducing our carbon footprint, conserving water, and reducing our dependence on the landfill; and we aspire to empower everyone to work for a better future for future generations.
