Associate Professor and Sustainability Coordinator
Department of Geography
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:
Miami University's planning and construction are guided by a set of master plans adopted at different times. A number of these have been developed or are being finalized with explicit sustainability goals.
* For example, in 2011 Miami University adopted a Campus Circulation Master Plan to prioritize alternative transportation.
* In 2011 it adopted a Storm Water Master Plan to reduce the quantity and improve the quality of runoff, and recapture and reuse storm water through the use of low-impact development and best management practices (e.g. cisterns, native and low maintenance landscaping, stormwater retention).
* It is currently developing a Utility/Energy Master Plan to reduce energy consumption, improve efficiency, and shift away from the consumption of coal for steam heat.
