A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

UCCS currently works with the City of Colorado Springs Sustainability Coordinator, the Pikes Peak Sustainable Business Network, the 6035 Green Team ( a regional approach for economic development), the Southern Colorado Sustainable Communities educational effort, the Pikes Peak Regional Sustainability Project, and the Green Cities Coalition to promote sustainability in the Pike Peak region. Additionally, UCCS coordinates with Colorado College and Fort Carson on sustainability planning and initiatives. The UCCS Sustainability Office provides sustainability tours for the community. Students from local high schools tour the UCCS campus specifically to learn about green buildings, the recycling program, and the organic garden. Teachers subsequently work with students to help green their schools.
