About the Office of Sustainability

The Office of Sustainability helps to fulfill Brandeis' commitment to social justice and its responsibility to the global community by elevating and promoting the sustainability of our campus and our community.

We do this through advocacy and policy work, educational programming, grants programs, competitions and a host of sustainability initiatives. Specifically, we are committed to reducing the university's carbon footprint as outlined in our Climate Action Plan, and to mitigating our impact on climate change in accordance with the "We Are Still In" declaration.

We invite you to join and support our work to help create a better Brandeis, a better community and a better world, now and for years to come.

“Since its founding in 1948, social justice has been central to the mission of Brandeis University. Our world today is radically different, as is our understanding and practice of social justice. Maintaining our commitment to this value necessarily means that we act on climate change with an urgency like never before.”
