Environmental Initiatives

Wayne State University has gone green.

WSU is working to give its community the best and most efficient recycling options, find new energy efficiency programs and provide the latest insights into sustainability through innovative seminars and conferences. Additionally, each new building or renovation brings new green technologies to meet USGBC standards for LEED certification.

 These initiatives don't happen accidentally. The President’s Standing Committee on Environmental Initiatives meets monthly to help ensure the university remains on a 'green' path. The committee's objectives are being realized through the efforts of its members and  subcommittees. The Standing Committee's work is guided by a report issued by the WSU Task Force on Environmental Initiatives. Click here to read the report.
