The University of Arkansas has multiple different opportunities available to staff to learn more about sustainability, including Diversity and Inclusion Trainings, Lunch and Learns, and the community of OLLI.

OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) segment for the University of Arkansas was founded in 2007. The program is taught by current or retired UofA faculty and community experts.

Lunch and Learns are put on by the Office For Sustainability. They are up to date and relatable to the community around North-West Arkansas in all things related to Sustainability.
