The University of Arkansas has been an NCSE Member Institution for ten years. Through environmental academic programs, campus initiatives, and innovative research, the University of Arkansas is a living laboratory for experiential learning. Students from all disciplines are able to supplement their degree path with the Sustainability Minor or Graduate Certificate. The campus prides itself on being AASHE STARS Gold, Bicycle Friendly University Silver, and Bee Campus USA certified. Interdisciplinary research teams across campus conduct studies to solve complex problems at the interface of food, water, and energy systems. Opportunities to contribute to the science of sustainability exist within every college and nearly every department on campus. 

Did You Know? The University of Arkansas will complete the nation’s first large-scale mass timber residence hall this fall. This 708 bed residence hall has cross-laminated timber as its structural core rather than concrete and steel.
