President's Message

Welcome to the Office of Sustainability at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

As a university deeply rooted in Cajun and Creole cultures, we are tied strongly to our environment and our communities. We value the right of each person to have the resources he or she needs and work to ensure that sustainable practices are in place to protect those resources for future generations.

Each of us has a responsibility to reduce the university’s impact on the environment. As an integral member of the Lafayette community and the state of Louisiana, we strive to make our university environmentally friendly, with lower resource consumption and waste production.

Campus sustainability is embedded in our university's strategic goals, long-term vision, and policies. Our sustainable efforts and practices are integrated into the everyday lives of our students, faculty, staff, and administration to make the campus a more eco-friendly environment.

It is our deepest commitment to ensure that the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is socially, economically, and environmentally conscious in all its actions. We encourage you to read through our website to see how we are creating a sustainable environment and how you can join us to make an impact on our campus, community, and world.

Dr. Joseph Savoie
