Sustainability @ UNCW

As North Carolina's coastal university, UNCW takes pride is maintaining the beauty and resources that can be enjoyed today for future generations of Seahawks and guests. Sustainability is an individual responsibility and team effort. Together we are working hard to make our community a even better place environmentally, socially and fiscally.

About Us


Mr. Stan Harts - Director Environmental Health & Safety and Chief Sustainability Officer

As UNCW's Chief Sustainability Officer, I am extremely proud of our accomplishments in sustainability, particularly our endeavors toward student education and engagement, applied learning, recycling and energy and water conservation. Part of our designation as North Carolina's coastal university implies a deeper connection and obligation to the environment while imparting a sense of responsibility to the students we educate. We have much to do to ensure that as we serve our students and region, we preserve the environment for future generations. While sustainability is a goal assigned to the Department of Environmental Health & Safety within the Office of Business Affairs, the commitment extends to offices and departments across the university through the efforts of the UNCW Sustainability Committee. I hope you share our passion for continued improvement as part of UNCW's path to a more sustainable campus.


Ms. Kat Pohlman - Sustainability Captain

I have an inherent passion for sustainability that fuels a motivation to educate, encourage and support others while continually fulfilling an insatiable need to learn more. As a UNCW graduate of 2011, I have had the pleasure of witnessing a cultural transformation on this campus. This culture not only fosters, but demands sustainable decisions and actions.
