SCU is one of the first universities in the country to make detailed requests for information about computer vendors' environmental performance, and to weigh this information when choosing a vendor for our PC Replacement Project. SCU donates almost all of the used computers from the PC Replacement Project to non-profit organizations and plans to help the recipients recycle these computers responsibly when they are no longer functional. SCU also plans to increase responsible re-use and recycling of other electronics on campus. About 95% of computer models are "Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool" (EPEAT) Gold.
