Community and Social Sustainability

There are many informational and fun events that focus on sustainability to check out here at UMass Lowell!!

The Office of Sustainability also works to maintain a presence at large university events and works to demonstrate the university's commitment to sustainability through large, regularly-occurring, annual events.

Fall 2020 Events

At this time the university is closely following the guidance of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Mass. Department of Public Health (MPH) and is responding appropriately to new information. If you’re looking for more detailed information about what’s happening on campus in reaction to the coronavirus, visit the university's coronavirus updates page.

We also support sustainability at events outside of our office by:

  • Tabling and promoting the university's core commitment to sustainability at Welcome Days, Open Houses, and other large annual events like the Kennedy College of Sciences Block Party.
  • Working behind the scenes to integrate sustainability into other university events and programming like ensuring recycling is available at the Tsongas Center.
  • Making your event more sustainable! Contact us for more information on how we support events like Homecoming and the River Hawk Rally, always keeping in mind our zero-waste goals and initiatives!
