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 Campus Master Plan outlines four core goals:

1. Create a campus setting that supports the four core principles of the University’s
Academic Plan, which are summarized as follows:
A learning-centred University
A research University
Multi-disciplinary inquiry
Return to community
2. Embrace the three pillars of sustainability––environmental, social, and economic––in every aspect of the planning and implementation of the master plan
3. Enhance the student experience on campus and nurture an engaged campus community
4. Establish a flexible campus design framework that will allow the University to accommodate growth and respond to changing priorities.

And incorporates sustainability within its six core principles and strategies:

1. Academic facilities should be organized to support the principles of the academic plan
2. Sustainability and systems-thinking should be embedded in all aspects of campus design and development
3. Development of the campus should improve the quality of the campus experience and
enhance student life
4. The open space and landscape framework should create a strong campus identity and
enhance campus life
5. All forms of transportation systems should be fully integrated, reinforce campus community, and support sustainability goals
6. Campus land and buildings should be used efficiently; buildings and grounds projects should contribute to improving the campus experience as a whole
