UT Arlington has strengthened its commitment to creating sustainable urban communities through the new Institute for Sustainability and Global Impact.
The program follows a successful period within the Office of Sustainability, which has received national recognition from the Environmental Protection Agency for UT Arlington’s efforts to reduce food waste. The office also implemented a new car-sharing program, began the first Global Reporting Initiative report as a Sustainability Action Plan, and in 2011 helped launch The Green at College Park, the first certified Sustainable Sites Initiative landscape.
The move is aligned with the University’s Strategic Plan 2020, which aims to enhance quality of life by developing more sustainable communities that focus on the natural, built, economic, cultural, and social environments. It also unifies and integrates environmental improvement approaches across campus.
Meghna Tare will lead the institute as an executive director and will oversee the strategic planning and day-to-day operations. Since 2010, she has served as director of the Office of Sustainability, which will transition into the new institute and eventually move from Preston Hall to a new location on campus.
