A more sustainable university

  • Recycling bins in each office with weekly or bi-weekly pickup or a central place in each building for recycling - –student led initiative 
  • Set an asymptotic goal of “zero waste” 
  • Source purchases locally where possible 
  • Experiential learning toward “green” living - University wide experiential learning (like common read) 
  • Sustain through retention, retain through reduction of degree requirements whenever possible 
  • Broader understand of what outcomes produce what resources 
  • In-service education/information 
  • Sustainability in the curriculum (e.g. a course in law economics and sustainability?) 
  • Expand BSCI Participation 
  • University wide reduction of carbon footprint – publicize getting there 
  • Data driven course scheduling 
  • Dual enrollment w/High Schools 
  • Distance delivery of whole degree programs 
  • More teaching faculty, less administration 
  • Better software to help us be more efficient in class decisions 
  • Expand & utilize extension and service learning services to develop and promote active, healthy communities. Communities can be university, local, state, regional, global. This work can be driven throughout our university curricula- inherently creates outreach and should result in grant procurement and scholarship. Addresses global and national health care concerns with focus on prevention. An integral piece of sustainability. Connects us globally – should pull together multiple disciplines across campus. 
  • Implement a consistent/transparent budget process 
  • All programs include environmental aspect 
  • Develop areas of expertise regionally 
  • Balance class sizes 
  • Ergonomic /refreshed student study area 
  • Planning models – degree audit 
  • Invest in staff to make sure priorities are successful 
  • “Capstone” courses to include campus sustainability projects 
  • 4-day work week 
  • Each course linked to environmental issues – (climate change) 
  • More flexible degree program 
  • Partnering with other institutions, networks increases recognition, mutual value, synergy and sustainable efforts
