Does the institution have a trayless dining program in which trays are removed from or not available in dining halls?:
Yes

A brief description of the trayless dining program:

The main dining hall features trayless operation to reduce food waste and to conserve water and energy usage. In addition, the trayless dining program provides an overall positive impact on student health – may discourage overeating and requires a trip to the food station to get more food.
There are no trays in the serving area; students and the campus community use plates to pick up food from food stations. A few trays are kept near the dishwashing room window for special needs and for placing multiple plates on the conveyer belt.
