Green Office Program

The Green Office Program goes beyond the typical environmental initiatives that many individuals, offices and departments at UT Arlington already support. This program takes a coordinated, long-term and campus-wide approach, providing resources, helpful guidelines and on-going consultation as needed. It also provides recognition to outstanding Maverick Green Offices.

As a University, we are committed to becoming a leader in sustainability and stewardship of the environment. Sustainability represents societal efforts to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Our efforts to date have been substantial. Many have taken the challenge to heart with individual commitments to recycling, turning off lights and computers at night, photocopying on two sides, and reducing water consumption.

We are encouraging all departments and offices to take the next step by signing up for the Green Office Program.

Green Office Tales

Green Team Award

Scott Ryan, center, dean of the School of Social Work, accepted the Maverick Office Green Team platinum award from John Hall, left, vice president of administration and campus operations, and President Vistasp Karbhari.

The School of Social Work is our first Platinum Level Green Office. They have developed their own logo which they use on team shirts that are provided to all team members. All employees in the School of Social Work have a reusable water bottle and coffee mug as well as a plant at their work station. Each year they have a Green Lunch on Fat Tuesday. Their lunch features sustainably sourced food that was organic and locally grown. Event the cups, plates and cutlery were 100% compostable. Their event was a Zero Waste event. The School of Social Work also has their own Facebook page.

We salute the School of Social Work for being a dedicated Green Office.
