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 ranked 1st Green University in Lebanon and in the top 10 ‘Greenest’ Universities in the Arab World by GreenMetric World University Ranking in 2017 and sustained the ranking for a further two years. In 2020, it continued its success by ranking 1st Sustainable and Green University in Lebanon and 6th Most Sustainable and Green University in the MENA.

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.
