The University of Texas at Austin strives for excellence in advancing environmental stewardship and sustainability on our campus, in our academic and research programs, and in our public service and outreach activities. The President’s Sustainability Steering Committee, the Campus Sustainability Policy, and the Office of Sustainability serve to guide us as we work together to advance economic vitality, ecological integrity, and social welfare.
The Green Longhorn
Do you like our new green Longhorn? The image is formed from five images of leaves found on campus: rosemary pine, Texas live oak, American sycamore, magnolia, and bur oak. You will find this image on announcements for major campus sustainability events, and maybe some special t-shirts and prizes throughout the year!
