    Why Sustainability?

    Sustainability is a spectrum, not a destination. We’re not here to simply define the word. We’re here to live up to it. 



    The idea of sustainability is fluid, changing over time and meaning different things to different people. We, the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse community, define sustainability as being both a local and global interaction between economy, environment, and society.  Through education and programming, we will provide students, faculty, staff and the community with the knowledge and skills to be environmentally responsible citizens who consider the effects of their actions and the actions of others around them.
