About Us


The mission of the Office for Sustainability is to guide and assist the Western Michigan University community in fulfilling and growing its sustainability commitments. Through building a diverse and flourishing learning community around sustainability, we will continually explore and develop new opportunities to create a culture of sustainability and improve quality of life for all.

Projects and Initiatives

With every project or initiative, we create open, cross-college collaborations that build ongoing and durable relationships, supporting a flourishing cohort of campus sustainability champions. From Zero Waste Initiatives, to the Gibbs House living laboratory, and from Student Sustainability Grants to the Wesustain Internship program -  we want anyone who encounters the WMU community to recognize an interdisciplinary, collaborative, and discovery driven experience.
