Tufts plays a crucial role in helping the world adapt to a changing planet while tackling such challenging issues as climate change, resource depletion, and environmental injustice. The Office of Sustainability offers opportunities for students and employees to get involved with Tufts' sustainability initiatives on all campuses. Below are a few of the many sustainability efforts at SMFA:

SMFA at Tufts' Carte Útil

The CArte Util is a sustainability initiative at SMFA to both reduce art material waste and provide reusable materials to students for free. Instead of throwing away art supplies that you no longer need, the CArte Util takes donations of used art supplies to then be checked out by students who need them throughout the school year. Materials donated by designers, art supply manufacturers, alumni, and more, are also made available for free to students through the CArte Util.

Sustainability Committee (SC)

The Sustainability Committee (SC) is made up of an enthusiastic cohort of students, faculty, and staff whose mission is to bring sustainability and environmental practices to the forefront here at SMFA. Whether they are organizing the CArte Util program, coordinating the Health, Safety, and Sustainability Day, working towards making the entire campus Green Certified, or championing composting and overall waste reduction, they strive to make a positive change happen. There are several ways you can get involved. Interested in joining? Email
