Administration & Outreach

students

We team up with the other Work Groups, campus organizations, departments and community organizations to promote the activities of the Sustainability Committee.

Scope

The Administration & Outreach work group is tasked with getting the message of sustainability out to students, faculty, staff, and the DFW community at large. We're utilizing various media resources to let people know about programs and events on campus, along with available opportunities to learn more about environmentalism and sustainability. We're also working with media outlets to inform the public about UT Arlington's commitment to and leadership in sustainable practices.
