Sustainable Facilities

Facilities has been involved in sustainable efforts since the 1940s, when our first steam generation plant went into operation on campus. We will continue to encourage and develop responsible and responsive practices that will foster positive behaviors and attitudes towards environmental stewardship for the sustainability of both the present and future generations.
