Communications & Engagement
Northwestern sustainability-related programs will succeed only if the University community is consistently informed and engaged. As such, Northwestern will weave sustainability into the campus culture, encouraging greater awareness of the environmental impact of actions and the adoption of more sustainable practices.
- Northwestern’s goal is to engage Northwestern and broader external communities, with a focus on communicating and collaborating on sustainability commitments.
