The Office of Sustainability utilizes a definition of sustainability crafted by the Ad Hoc Faculty Committee on Sustainability:
1. Living within limits imposed by available resources and without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs
2. Examining the interconnections among the economy, social well-being, and the environment; and
3. Equitably distributing resources and opportunities for advancement across places and among generations.
