Green Programs



What do you get when you mix a thriving University with a limited footprint? Our growing operations creates new urgency to deepen our University's commitment to sustainable programs and policies - simply put, business tactics that make smart use of existing resources and infrastructure, minimizing negative impact on our environment.

So, where do we go from here?

Our Green programs not only help ease traffic congestion both around our growing University and within our parking lots, but can help each of us become a wiser steward of our plant (fewer emissions) and save ourselves a fair amount of money
