  • 5 Year Strategies

  • Building strategies:

  • Apply sustainable practices to all new buildings & renovations, including private buildings

  • LEED Silver certification for all projects over 20K GSF

  • Maximize space utilization

  • Minimize new building footprints

  • Create prototype documents for all projects to gain credit for campus-wide initiatives not currently recognized by USGBC

  • Obtain funding & political support to reach goals

  • Build flexible space that can be easily repurposed, plan for multiple uses

  • Consider micro-climate during planning & design

  • Holistic renovations

  • Adaptive re-use and renewal

  • Operable windows & individual controls for occupant comfort

  • Re-use and repurpose materials (doors, windows, hardware)

  • Market campus sustainable efforts, outreach

Land use strategies:

  • Consider site during Master Planning to maximize site characteristics and climatic benefits

  • Master Plan for most effective development density

  • Respect and restore local watersheds

Energy & water strategies:

  • Reduce energy usage by 20% for all buildings

  • Reduce water usage by 30% for all buildings

  • Employ technologies that help conserve energyReduce energy usage by 20% across campus

  • Reduce water usage by 30% across campus

Academic strategies:

  • Increase distance learning initiatives and programs

  • Engage faculty & students and their research

Materials & Purchasing strategies:

  • Use materials to help reduce the carbon footprint

  • Encourage use of local materials

  • Refurbish furniture for re-use

Waste reduction & recycling strategies:

  • Identify sources that will assist with recycling of materials

  • Employ construction reuse & recycling methods

  • Re-use furniture and other similar items rather than discard to a landfill
