Sustainability is nothing new at UW Oshkosh.

Since 2001, or so, the university has been "going green" and has received national recognition from leading organizations. We are dedicated to continually reducing our environmental footprint, partnering with local governments, community groups, non-profit organizations and businesses (e.g., Johnson Controls), being a positive model for other institutions, and providing workshops & training in addition to formal education.
