Sustainability Practices and Research Center (SPARC)

Our Purpose

The mission of the Weber State University Sustainability Practices and Research Center is to inform and educate WSU students, faculty, staff, and the local and statewide community in order to ensure the sustainability of our region and our world for future generations.

The Center collaborates closely with the Environmental Initiatives Committee and the Energy and Sustainability Office, serving as a hub to connect campus activities, programs, departments, and community partners in order to advance a commitment to sustainability in the region.

We work with faculty to incorporate sustainability topics and materials into research and the curriculum.

What We Do

Tuesdays, from 1:30-2:45 p.m., come learn from Weber's award winning faculty from across campus, who are bringing  sustainability to their teaching, research and/or projects.

Community Programs

SPARC and the Energy and Sustainability Office host community programs every year. In 2019, we helped community members upgrade to LED lighting. Over 480 households installed more than 6,500 LEDs, collectively cutting utility costs by over $40,000 each year.
