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 Thompson Rivers University Campus Plan was adopted in 2003, and includes sustainability as one of its guiding principles.

“Guiding Principle #5: Sustainable Campus Environmental

The Campus Plan will create a sustainable campus community environment that will not com- promise the environmental, social or economic systems within which we operate.
Strategic Objective 5.1
The Campus Plan will embrace the native landscape of the region, preserve vistas and views and promote the pedestrian nature of the campus.
Strategic Objective 5.2
The Campus Plan must recognize the exiting topography of the campus and acknowledge the constraints this places on development.
Strategic Objective 5.3
Buildings and open spaces should conform to best practice in environmental design and consideration be given to achieving a consistent and recognized standard such as the LEED rating system of the USGBC.
Strategic Objective 5.4
The Campus Plan will support alternative modes of transportation including bicycles and public transit. Parking and vehicle movement will be limited as much as possible to the periphery of the campus.
Strategic Objective 5.5
The Campus Plan will strike a balance between higher density and open space so as to sup - port and enhance the quality of campus life.”
