go green
An important part of environmental sustainability is the reduction of waste. With that goal in mind, the University has joined the more than 2,000 other members of the Environmental Protection Agency's WasteWise program in an effort to help reduce waste output.

Staff, Students Marching in Puerto Rican Parade
Members of the University's Latino Professional Alliance, along with students from the Medical Center's Science and Technology Entry Program, will walk with Rocky this Saturday, July 31, in the annual Puerto Rican Parade. The parade marches down Main Street in downtown Rochester at 10 a.m.

Lawrence Poison and Drug Information Center.
