Does the institution prioritize the use of native plant species in landscaping?:

A brief description of the native plant program, policy, or practice:

Preferred plants lists are provided to outside design consultants to guide their plant palette so that their design is in keeping with the overall character of the campus canopy. Native plants will be given preference when all other aspects are equal.

The website URL where information about the program, policy, or practice is available:

- We have planted native tree varieties on campus in the last 3 years.

- We have planted native perennial plantings around several campus buildings, with some intentional and some incidental design.

- In spring 2013, a native shrub and perennial garden was planted at University Library, designed by University Landscape Architects.
