Northwestern University

Communication and Engagement

Our vision is to foster a University-wide culture of sustainability and environmental stewardship.

Northwestern is committed to developing sustainability programs that encourage conservation and protection of the natural environment. Because our programs will succeed only if the University community is consistently informed and engaged, we will strive to weave sustainability into the campus culture, encouraging greater awareness of the environmental impact of our actions and the adoption of more sustainable practices.

The Communications and Engagement Working Group is the hub for outreach efforts and ensures that all five Working Groups maintain a common focus on Northwestern’s sustainability objectives. The group seeks to build the leadership capacity of students, faculty, and staff and to motivate them to conserve resources, reduce waste, increase energy efficiency, and reduce the University’s carbon footprint.
