Executive Memorandum 11-017 established the Campus Sustainability Committee.

In 2007, President Paul Zingg became one of the founding signatories of the American Colleges & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). This climate commitment is an outward expression of our campus’s leadership in charting a path toward a more sustainable campus community and our commitment to address climate change by reducing, and ultimately neutralizing, greenhouse gas emissions from campus and to accelerate research and educational efforts to equip society for a more sustainable future.

As a signatory of the ACUPCC, our institution is pledged to eliminate our campus’s collective contribution to climate change over time. This commitment includes establishing an institutional structure to oversee the development and implementation of a program to comply with this commitment. The Campus Sustainability Committee works to fully integrate sustainability across campus departments.
