​​Operating Principles

​UWSP is committed to sustainability and its practice in our daily operations. Sustainability is the human enterprise of living to meet today’s needs without compromising the needs of future generations, and to be ecologically sound, socially just, culturally affirming, politically doable, and economically viable. We demonstrate our commitment to sustainability through such measures as local food purchasing, resource recovery (recycling), composting food wastes, energy reduction and continually exploring ideas to promote and support sustainability initiatives.​

UWSP Dining will use all reasonable efforts to incorporate affordably priced local and renewable products and services that reflect the campus’s commitment to sustainability.  We will also focus efforts on utilizing reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable products when available.​
