A brief summary of the climate plan’s long-term goals:

So far there is no official emissions program, but there have been many increased efforts for climate sustainability. The campus's "Blue Goes Green" committee has highlighted major steps for the university's Earth-friendly efforts which include campus-wide recycling, Earth-friendly admissions publications (with soy-based ink), biodegradable eating utensils, and a community garden. Also, a TimeCar system has been set up, where students can rent a shared car for a certain amount of time.
