The University of Calgary became the first designated Fair Trade Campus in Alberta in 2015.
By maintaining indoor and outdoor gardens, and hosting community events, UCalgary is growing both food and knowledge. Food Services ensures that goods sold on campus come from farmers and artisans who work in safe environments and receive fair wages, and all campus food vendors are Styrofoam free.
UCalgary is committed to becoming a zero waste community. To help achieve this goal, the university currently recycles or composts paper, plastic, glass, batteries, food waste, furniture, tires, fluorescent light bulbs, and more.
We can all help keep our campus clean and green by getting garbage off the ground and litter out of the landfill by properly disposing of waste.
With many of our community driving to campus, we are working to reduce impacts on the environment through programs, incentives and travel alternatives that are easy on the wallet and encourage active and sustainable commuting.
At UCalgary, our policies, programs, resources and strategies seek to create an equitable, diverse, and inclusive campus that is accessible to all and free from harassment, bullying and discrimination.
