Sustainability Tour

June 2, 2014

University of Washington is a vibrant green campus, and it’s not just because spring has sprung! Over the next two weeks you’ll likely come across one of our Sustainability Tour sandwich boards featuring spots on campus that are engaged in one of our many ongoing sustainable initiatives. The hope is that these boards will inform touring prospective students and families that sustainability and environmental stewardship are deeply rooted on campus, as well as engage the community in some green Husky pride.
