How important is sustainability to us? In March 2010, we made it one of our six official strategic goals. Since then, focusing on how we can protect the planet has led us to explore new ways to operate more sustainably.
It's much more than setting out recycling bins across campus. We've charged our faculty with finding methods to integrate sustainable education within their courses. New construction and renovation on campus now includes sustainable materials. We've even created a new degree, the bachelor of integrated studies with an emphasis in sustainability, society and resource management.
