PAE-3: Physical Campus Plan
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 university’s Master Plan includes sustainability and stewardship as one of its ten principles, which are based on the larger strategic goals of the university. The Master Plan states: “Integral to its dual roles of providing transformative learning and contributing to the betterment of the urban community, it is appropriate that Marquette demonstrates a high level of stewardship and sustainability of its physical resources.”
The plan encourages renovation and reuse of existing facilities wherever possible. The plan also identifies building sites on which existing structures have outlived their utility, and which could be better utilized for future development of state of the art facilities that will serve the university’s mission more efficiently.
Stewardship is also reflected in the compactness and proximity of proposed facilities—conserving limited land resources, limiting utility runs, and encouraging a high degree of community interaction. The plan embraces the application of energy-efficient design in all buildings and infrastructure and encourages the use of buildings and landscape design to mitigate climate extremes.
