Campus Initiatives

Through various campus initiatives, the Office of Sustainability saved 6 million kWh of energy and 15 million gallons of water in 2010-2011. We have also diverted more than 1 million pounds of e-waste from landfills and  created a single-stream recycling program, encouraging all members of the USD community to recycle or compost. The Office of Sustainability has a community garden and composting available for students to grow their favorite produce. It is important to get the students engaged to work on the sustainability projects they are interested in to make USD a more eco-friendly community.
