University of South Florida – Office of Sustainability


USF opened its doors in 1960 to 2,000 students. Today, the USF System welcomes more than 47,000 students from across the country and around the globe and is recognized as one of the nation’s top 63 public research universities.

The first independent state university conceived, planned and built in the 20th century, USF has made incredible progress in just a little more than 50 years developing into one of the nation’s leading research institutions.

The Office actively supports faculty, staff, students, alumni and neighborhood partners in their efforts to transform the University of South Florida into a \’Green University\’ where decisions – structural and routine – consider both individual and collective impacts to our campus, community, economy and environment.
