Sustainability Month

The University of the Pacific has set aside the month of April each year as Sustainability Month. During the month we celebrate and highlight sustainable and green activities on all three campuses. Some activities have included: a bike repair station, Green Fashion Show, celebrity guest speakers such as Annie Leonard and Eric Schlosser, the Beehive Collective and more. Each campus hosts a variety of activities based on the demands and desires of their students, faculty and staff.

2018 Calendar of Events 

Welcome to Sustainability Month 2018! This year's theme is intertwined! Intertwined describes the related social, economic, and environmental connections that make up sustainability. It highlights that the impacts of our actions are felt in all three areas and solutions must also address all three areas to be lasting and effective.
