Sustainability can be defined as meeting the present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. According to, sustainability means reducing our footprint on the future and involves improving economic efficiency, protecting and restoring ecological systems and enhancing the wellbeing of people.

In the summer of 2007, University President Frank T. Brogan signed the President's Climate Commitment. As part of this commitment, FAU formally established a sustainability working committee — whose representatives include students, faculty and staff — to address issues related to FAU's global environmental footprint.

The University's Mission Green campaign represents this committee's continuing work.  Please explore the different areas of these efforts and become an active participant.
