Law School Green Team Vision

The law school community will be a model for the campus and greater community on how to live in a sustainable fashion.  This will be accomplished through effective education programs, community engagement and individual actions.

Law School Green Team Purpose

The Green Team identifies opportunities to encourage sustainability-related behavior changes within the law school and beyond.  These may include:

  • Features that need to be incorporated in building design/construction early enough to be implementable;
  • Action plans for ongoing operational programs, including sustainable purchases;
  • Goals to raise individual and institutional sustainability awareness, tiered to the University’s institutional goals and plans; and
  • Ongoing monitoring, evaluation and continual adjustment to ensure the success of the programs and the facility.
