Creating a More Sustainable Campus

“As a leading global public research university, we know the importance of environmental stewardship and what’s at stake if we don’t act swiftly,” said UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz.

While Carolina has been a leader in sustainability for years, a recent gift will give the University a big boost to continue creating a more sustainable campus. This $1 million investment from the Champion Athleticwear brand will establish the Champion Sustainability Fund: a multifaceted initiative designed to encourage Carolina community members to create sustainable solutions.

“Our students, faculty and staff have long been committed to creating a more sustainable Carolina,” said Chancellor Guskiewicz. “The Champion Sustainability Fund will open new doors for our sustainability work and allow us to invest in projects and practices that benefit our community and our world.”

Once operational, the revolving fund will support several new programs, including the Champion Sustainability Research Accelerator and the Sustainable Carolina Opportunity Fund.
