Campus Sustainability Leaders Awards

The Campus Sustainability Leaders Awards (CSLA) recognize outstanding individuals for their efforts to build a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable world. These winners are leading the way in how the University of Alberta operates, the services we provide, the way we teach, and strengthening the fabric of campus life. 

For the first time this year, we will be presenting one of the university’s outstanding students with the Michael Rawson Clark award, in commemoration of the late sustainability champion. Learn more about Michael’s contributions to campus sustainability here
