About USEK

Sustainability Initiatives

For over a decade the Holy Spirit University (USEK) has been working toward tackling the challenges of sustainability, a major task facing higher education institutions worldwide.

In 2016, the USEK Green Committee was created to advance the environmental management of the institution, increase its environmental and social performance and engage the university community as a whole in sustainable development. Within a year of the creation of the committee, USEK was ranked by GreenMetric World University Ranking 2017 as 1st Green University in Lebanon and among the 10 ‘Greenest’ Universities in the Arab World, and in 2019, 1st Sustainable and Green University in Lebanon and 3rd Most Sustainable and Green University in the Arab World of that year.

The committee continues to transform the campus environment into a greener setting, remodel infrastructure, improve water management, increase education and research in sustainability to encourage and embed sustainable behaviors. More recently it has worked hard to expand the university’s goals by demonstrating and spreading good environmental practice on a national level.

Students are not only equipped to become responsible professionals or researchers but also to be future social and ecological leaders able to make the right decisions toward sustainability in local and global arenas.

It remains USEK’s top priority to continue growing a culture of sustainability among students, faculty, and staff, empowering them to be green actors in helping reduce environmental footprints through their actions and initiatives.
