Stevenson University Green Initiatives

Green Thoughts

The new Stevenson University School of Business and Leadership demonstrates the commitment the University has made to green buildings and sustainability. Eco-friendly features include energy-efficient light fixtures and occupancy sensors, low-flow plumbing, a web-based control system to allow for remote setbacks during unoccupied periods, and low-E glass to reduce heating and cooling loads. The new structure did not require additional parking areas or construction of impervious surfaces - reducing the environmental footprint.

Greening Our Space

What do cups, food waste, and soap have in common? At Stevenson University, these three products are part of a larger effort toward greening the campus with recycling, purchasing of eco-friendly products, and rethinking how things work. Here's a list of what's new:

Fill Up- Recyclable corn cups and refillable mugs in the Mustang Corral eatery; Napkins made of recycled materials; Green mountain coffee, a fair trade coffee, is now available.

Clean Up- Paper towel dispensers are now battery-powered "Enmotion" dispensers, saving paper and dollars; Handsoap in the Gojo dispensers is a green certified soap cleaning chemicals are being switched to green certified products.

Power Up- Electronic waste, such as computers and monitors, is recycled annually. Refrigerants are captured/contained (when appropriate) and sent to a company for cleaning and reuse.
