The Office of Sustainability works to educate the Virginia Tech community about how to live a more sustainable and low-impact lifestyle through behavior change and an understanding of the impacts one’s personal actions can have on a global scale. The office works with the understanding that even the smallest behavior changes can create a more sustainable world.
The Office of Sustainability acts as a central hub to connect the many sustainability champions and efforts taking place all across campus. Creating positive change requires the input and cooperation of the entire university community. The office routinely coordinates with other departments to bring about sustainable change.
Key sustainability programs include the Student Sustainability Internship Program and Green Request for Proposal Program.
