The UH sustainability policy outlines 5 overarching areas of sustainability to advance: Operations, Curriculum, Research, Community Engagement, and Cultural Connections.

UH Office of Sustainability functions as a backbone organization, providing support to the campuses to enhance the existing sustainability work under way, and much-needed coordination capacity for campuses to share information and resources with each other so that our institution as a whole can become more agile, more intelligent and highly impactful.
