I am pleased to inform you that the new Center for a Sustainable Environment (CSE) is now officially established. The Academic Senate had approved establishment of the Center for a Sustainable Environment on December 3, 2012. The formal search process for director of the CSE will start this month.
Both the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) and the Office of Sustainability (OS) have been merged in this new center. Both the ECI and the OS have done outstanding work in the area of environment and sustainability for our campus and their efforts are greatly appreciated. The CSE will build upon the efforts of these two entities.
Detailed information about accomplishments of the ECI is accessible from the CSE website. We would like you to continue to stay connected to sustainability initiatives and activities on the campus. If you have previously subscribed to the OS Newsletter, you will now receive the CSE Newsletter in its place. If you were previously receiving messages from the ECI, please subscribe to the CSE Newsletter, “like” CSE on Facebook, or follow CSE on Twitter.
The CSE is being supported by the Alvin H. Baum Family Foundation through a generous gift.
Acting Director, Center for a Sustainable Environment

Governor Quinn and the Green Governments Coordinating Council have recognized the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a Gold Level Compact School within the Illinois Campus Sustainability Compact program. This designation serves as a signal to our community and peer institutions that the University is a leader in higher education sustainability.
“We have made sustainability a top priority on our campus, in our facilities, in our research and teaching, and in our use of all of our resources and our engagement with the community around us and with the state. It is an honor to get recognition for our efforts.” – Chancellor Phyllis Wise
The University began participating in the Compact program at a Gold Level in 2010 and has retained this level of participation through continued progress towards campus sustainability goals and initiatives.
