A resilient campus landscape
We strive to improve our campus' water and air quality, and to reduce our chemical footprint. After receiving an Innovation Fund grant in 2018, Landscape Services is in the process of increasing the amount of organic waste composted and reused on-campus.
In addition, the Environmental Quality and Land Use Working Group completed a GIS tree inventory for 2016 and 2019, collecting the condition, GPS coordinates, size, species, maintenance needs, and other valuable notes of interest on over 12,000 trees and stumps. The working group is currently evaluating changes to the woodland campus and making recommendations to improve campus landscape resilience.
