Sustainability is core to the university’s mission of advancing the common good. The University of St. Thomas infuses sustainability into academic programs, student life, facilities, dining and campus operations while working toward a goal of carbon neutrality by 2035. Our accomplishments were recognized by the Princeton Review's Guide to Green Colleges, a silver STARS rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, Sierra magazine's Cool Schools ranking, and three Marks of Distinction from the Climate Leadership Network.
