Sustainability is an ongoing effort by the University of Texas at Arlington to promote an eco-friendly growth. There are several services that UTA students can benefit from as well as activities they can participate so they can become better informed. President Spaniolo launched the sustainability committee in October 2007 and then in 2010 the Sustainability Office was established. The office is commited to find different ways to promote energy efficient construction, innovative research, and support and encourage student initiatives. Recently College Park and the Engineering Research Building are being recognized for their energy efficiency.
