University Sustainability Goal Development:
Charge from the President and Provost

In March 2015, President Michael V. Drake and Provost Joseph E. Steinmetz charged the President and Provost’s Council on Sustainability to develop strategic sustainability goals to make Ohio State a global model of sustainable operations and practices.

PPCS workgroups made recommendations, with university community input, for sustainability goals in all four of the university’s overarching core goals:

  • teaching and learning
  • research and innovation
  • outreach and engagement
  • resource stewardship

Workgroups met to develop ideas and seek campus community input, and a report detailing the proposed Sustainability Goals was presented to Provost Steinmetz in September 2015.
