Climate Action

Sustainability Strategic Plan | Climate Action

As a 2007 Charter Signatory of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment, we are proud of our early leadership and bold commitment to climate neutrality. We have significantly reduced our net contributions to global warming and recognize we need to take new steps to balance our commitment to climate neutrality with a growing and expanding global engagement.


Achieve Climate Neutrality


  • Increase energy performance of our buildings
  • Decarbonize our energy sources

  • Reduce single-occupancy commutes
  • Provide opportunities for higher fuel efficiency
  • Reduce travel emissions
Develop programs to engage employees in reducing University-funded travel emissions
coming soon!
