Wisconservation is a month long sustainability engagement initiative lead by UW-Madison's Office of Sustainability to increase awareness of sustainable living. During the month of March, students, faculty, and staff are challenged to increase their recycling efforts, decrease their energy usage, and work together as a community to foster resource conservation both on and off-campus. The Wisconservation challenge replaces previous competitions: RecycleMania and Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN).

Each fall University Housing hosts Sustain-A-Bash, an event to celebrate sustainability and connect students' interest in sustainability to their campus living experience. Students learn how to apply their environmental passions through campus academic and engagement resources. Interactive activities led by student organizations educate students on behavior choices, particularly how they relate to waste, food, water, and energy.
