Office of Sustainability

Welcome to the American University Office of Sustainability! The Office of Sustainability was founded in 2009 to help meet the university's goal of "acting on our values of social responsibility, service [and] an active pursuit of sustainability." Our office develops and supports campus initiatives that promote a sustainability-minded environment for our students, faculty, staff, and community. We work closely with student organizations and other departments to provide the AU community with the knowledge and support to enhance sustainability on our campus, in Washington, DC, and throughout the world.
