The UCCS Office of Sustainability unites the efforts of faculty, staff and students to support development and lifestyles on campus and in the community that sustain natural resources and protect the environment, ultimately ensuring the ability of future generations to meet their needs too.
UCCS Unplugged - Coming this Spring!
In light of our annual UCCS Unplugged event, we will be kicking off the energy campaign called Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN). The event will be held at the end of the month of January in 2014. We are looking for performers of all kinds - poetry, musicians, singers - to perform. If you are interested in participating and showing your talent off, please contact us at email@example.com.

As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to meet passionate, like-minded individuals, gain professional experience in a safe environment, bolster your resume with projects you've completed with the Office, obtain a letter of recommendation from Linda Kogan, Director of Sustainability, and much more.
