Established in May of 2008 by AR 6:8 [PDF], this advisory committee grew out of the work of a Task Force. The task force was appointed in 2005 after a group of students met with University Administrators to encourage sustainable development at the University of Kentucky.
The mission of the Sustainability Advisory Committee is to promote sustainability within the University and in the University’s relations with the larger community to enhance the University’s standing as a global leader in sustainability. The goal of the committee is to make the University of Kentucky—in its operations, education, research and outreach—a model of sustainability. The committee will make recommendations on a more holistic approach to the development and implementation of sustainable policies, practices, research and curricula for the University of Kentucky and identify the means to achieve them.
