Campus Initiatives

A commitment to environmental stewardship is casting a green sheen on every corner of the campus. With priorities that address energy and water conservation, construction, transportation, recycling, and more, the University is becoming an example for other higher education institutions to follow.

The Office of Sustainability charged the Sustainability Committee to come up with sustainable solutions for the University community. The group includes more than 45 members and almost a dozen work groups composed of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and city and regional government personnel. Each work group presented more than 150 ideas for consideration. Of those, Spaniolo selected more than 85 to address in 2008 and 2009.
