UAB Sustaining Employee Ambassadors logo.The Sustainability Ambassadors Program is one way to ensure departments on campus have an investment in and exposure to sustainability for all departments at UAB. The program will create a network of employees in each building on UAB’s academic and medical campus, and those employees will promote sustainability to colleagues in their building through problem-solving, communication, and new programming.

Sustainability Ambassadors will communicate and advocate for more sustainable practices within their buildings, programs, and scopes of work in an effort to cultivate a sustainability culture in the professional workspaces at UAB. They will also act as conduits of information to implement tailored sustainable programs to meet the needs of the buildings they serve.

Please email UAB Sustainability at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to become an Ambassador. Nominations are also welcome!
