Sustainability Advisory Board

The Sustainability Advisory Board (SAB) has served the University of the Incarnate Word and the wider San Antonio community for over 20 years. A volunteer group composed of students, staff, faculty, administrators and community leaders, the SAB works to make UIW as sustainable and climate-conscious as it can be, while working in concert with the local community to broaden UIW's educational outreach. Monthly meetings occur during fall and spring semesters, and the SAB also meets for an end-of-year annual retreat.
