About Us

Faculty, staff and students across Tulane University are working to understand environmental issues and collaborate on solutions. Green.Tulane.edu can connect you with environmental opportunities in the classroom, in student activities, and efforts to reduce our own environmental impact. The website is maintained by the Office of Sustainability.

Contact Information

The Tulane Office of Sustainability provides assistance to the many environmental efforts undertaken by Tulane departments, offices and programs. With a largely student staff, we promote recycling, energy efficiency, and alternative transportation options across the Tulane community. We also research and develop new programs to help "green" the Tulane campus.

For a history of its creation, read the student honors thesis that launched this office, "Greening the Campus: Institutional Environmental Change at Tulane University."
