Introduction: There has been a growing interest in sustainable development across government departments, business groups and the community sector reflecting a major shift in thinking about the importance of sustainability in our day-to-day lives. Many universities around the world have taken initiatives to make their campus communities more sustainable. A sustainable campus can be defined as “a higher education institution … that addresses, involves and promotes … the minimization of environmental, economics, societal and health negative effects in the use of their resources in ... its main functions of teaching, research, outreach and partnership, and stewardship … to help society make the transition to sustainable lifestyles” (Velazquez et al., 2006:815).
