About Us

Office of Sustainability

The Office of Sustainability was created in 2008 as the Office of Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability (ESS). In 2017, ESS joined with Campus Planning and Community Resources to beome a new division, Campus Planning and Environmental Stewardship, which created a close alignment of campus planning, environmental planning and sustainability planning, united sustainability with other units that shape the campus experience, and further strengthened the campus commitment to sustainability as an integral and strategic part of UC Davis' future.

What we do

The Office of Sustainability develops, leads, and coordinates sustainability efforts throughout the UC Davis campus. Staff members create strategies and plans to improve campus operations, work to implement the UC Office of the President's sustainability policy, establish sustainability metrics for UC Davis, work with faculty and students on project-based learning and learning-by-leading opportunities, build institutional capacity for sustainability on- and off-campus, and inspire the community to work toward a sustainable future.

Where we are

Our offices are located on the fourth floor of Mrak Hall. Mrak Hall has bike parking on the north and east sides of building, and is a short walk from several Unitrans lines. There are also one-hour parking meters on the south side of Mrak Hall, and visitor parking in the South Entry Parking Structure. Our mailing address is:
