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:
The Campus Master Plan adopted in April 2008 incorporates sustainability in two out of the eight goals that guide decisions about campus facilities. Goal 6 states that the master plan will help “create a campus culture that is committed to ecological sustainability, both operationally and academically [which will] make Dickinson known for the quality of its environmental stewardship.” Goal 7 is to “instill a culture of prudent use of resources and respect for the natural world that supports civilized society.” Within the blueprints of the plan, there are guidelines and specifications for more greenspace, pedestrian-friendly walkways, biking and public transit accommodations, and integrating education with the landscaping plans.

The year the physical campus plan was developed or adopted:
