center-for-sustainability-logoWelcome to the Center for Sustainability at UWG (CSUWG). The Center was created in 2014 as an extension of the Sustainability Council; its mission is to promote sustainability initiatives on campus and the community with a longer term vision of making UWG one of the most recognized sustainable campuses in Georgia.

Currently the Center's mission and vision are being pursued by the Sustainability Council and the Director of Sustainabilty at UWG. This website is the virtual home of the Center; it aims to be a go-to site for all things related to sustainability on campus. We hope you find it useful.
