A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability, including the issues, bills, and ordinances for or against which the institution has advocated:

UCCS, through the Office of the Chancellor, publicly and formally supported the federal Higher Education Sustainability Act, which passed in 2008. UCCS was also engaged through the Office of Sustainability with giving feedback for the Colorado Senate Bill 07-51, which required State institutions receiving more than 25% of funding for new buildings and major renovations to build to LEED Gold standards. UCCS does not have a formal mechanism for public policy advocacy on sustainability issues, but is willing to make comments on public sustainability issues that affect the university.
