Sustainable Research uOttawa

We want to create an environment where students have the opportunity to learn about and apply sustainability concepts in their academic pursuits.



In 2013, the Institute of the Environment launched the Collaborative Master’s in Environmental Sustainability. In 2014, the full Master’s program was inaugurated.

Living Laboratory


At the University of Ottawa, the Living Laboratory is a unique program that uses academic course work and community volunteering to improve sustainability related to campus operational challenges.

It is your chance to work on campus issues in a positive manner that promotes place-based learning while earning academic credit.

Students, staff, and faculty are coordinated through the Office of Campus Sustainability and the Community Service Learning program to work on campus projects. The projects are often integrated into course work or can be worked on as an independent assignment.

If you are a student, take a look at the available Community Service Learning opportunities listed on the Community Service Learning website or visit our volunteering page for more information.
