Does the institution's physical campus plan include sustainability at a high level?:

A brief description of how the physical campus plan or amendment includes sustainability:

As individuals and communities, we have a responsibility to future generations to reduce our impact to the environment. One way to fulfill this responsibility is by embracing sustainable practices in our day-to-day lives. CI has made a strong commitment to sustainability and to creating a green campus. Through the implementation of CSU.PER along with conscientious student, faculty and staff participation, future campus growth and improvements will provide great opportunities for incorporating green practices into campus planning, implementation, maintenance and operational processes.
Sustainable practices to consider include:
• Preserve and retrofit of existing buildings to support current and future uses
• Maximize natural daylight
• Incorporate operable windows to minimize dependence on conditioned air
• Incorporate systems and products with recycled/recyclable content
• Update building systems to maximize energy efficiency
• Update building fixtures to reduce water usage
• Provide recycling bins throughout campus to encourage campus participation
• Preserve mature trees, vegetation, and green space
• Incorporate native vegetation to reduce water usage and utilize reclaimed water for irrigation
• Research alternative energy sources including wind turbines and solar panels
• Incorporate bioswales into surface parking lot design to support drainage and runoff
