Purple, Gold & Green

""Sustainability is a core part of the University of Washington Bothell, and has been since our inception over 20 years ago. The construction of campus helped weave sustainability into our fabric, the development and growth of our campus continues to guide our vision for how we evolve. We are committed to keeping our campus green.

What is sustainability?

Sustainability is defined as as using the resources we have in the present to sustain us, without compromising the needs of future wellness. What this means is that we need to be stewards of our resources so we don't overshoot our supply and run out. This relates to resources such as water, food, energy, materials, and more. This also has to do with coming together as a community to share these resources and find opportunities to find common ground and work toward the health and wellbeing of our community.

Sustainability is not limited to the envrionment. The UW Bothell Sustainability Office hosts a wide variety of programs and initiatives that touch on different aspects of sustainability as a whole.
