Over the years, UT has made great progress at reducing the environmental impact of campus operations. In fact, the University has been widely recognized as a leader in resource conservation and environmental stewardship.

Environmental efforts at UT have accelerated recently with the establishment of UT Recycling and the Office of Sustainability.
