The University is embarking on a number of sustainability activities. Below are highlighted initiatives:

  • New policy on sustainability
  • Green Team
  • Sustainability Progress Report (2008)
  • Connect by Hertz Car Share Program - Allows faculty, staff and students to rent a car by the hour or day for a small fee
  • Reggie Ride - Allows faculty, staff, and students to check out a bicycle for free
  • Holiday shutdown energy savings - During the holiday break shutdown, the University realized $72,000 in cost savings through energy conservation measures like turning down thermostats and unplugging computers and other unused machines
  • Trayless dining - Watterson Commons Dining Center implemented trayless dining after the 2010 spring break, which switched from paper products to permanent dishes throughout the facility; the Marketplace at Linkins previously went trayless
  • Waste fryer oil use - Converted into fuel for use in campus fleet vehicles
  • Dine-In Challenge - Challenged the University community to eat in the dining center locations instead of carrying out meals in hopes of reducing those meals carried out by 15 percent
