Does the institution use xeriscape landscaping techniques, including the selection of drought tolerant plants?:
A brief description of the program or practice:
Drew University has a "native plant only" policy on campus which helps tremendously with drought, pests, and disease tolerance. Although there is no specifically written xeriscaping policy, the university selects plants very carefully to match them with the site conditions in order to avoid the need for irrigation or fertilizer usage.
