recent sustainability news


Welcome to the Office of Sustainability Practices

The Sustainability office has been in place at GVSU for 13 years, and Sustainability is now the seventh value at the University. 

We have moved from initiatives to defined practices in administration and campus operations, educational opportunities, student involvement, and community engagement.

GVSU is known locally, regionally, nationally, and globally for applied sustainability best practices on campus and in the community.
