Does the institution use xeriscape landscaping techniques, including the selection of drought tolerant plants?:
Yes

A brief description of the program or practice:

Native trees, shrubs and grasses are specified for landscape plantings. When non-natives are utilized for special applications, they are selected on the merits of being insect and disease resistant. Non-native plants must be hardy in planting zones 6-7 (the type that thrive on our campus) to best ensure they will thrive with minimal irrigation.
