The Sustainability Institute for Regional Transformations (SIRT) at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh engages stakeholders from Wisconsin and beyond to build healthy communities, inclusive economies, and ecologically sound environments through inquiry, education and action.


We direct efforts to strengthen the university’s sustainability curriculum in conjunction with UWO faculty and the University Studies Program, including workshops and roundtables.


We serve as a hub for sustainability research and discussions through our web-based searchable listing of sustainability-related research on campus, seminar series, and research clusters.


We support the work of numerous organizations on campus to develop, maintain, and promote one of the most sustainable college campuses in Wisconsin and the nation.


We engage with our community and our region to build a culture of sustainability with a variety of public events during the Earth Charter Community SummitEarth week events and throughout the year.
