LEED Certification (Ongoing)

The University has adopted LEED Silver certification as a part of the Facility Standards on new construction.  Facilities & Services tracks LEED status for new buildings and major recontruction.

Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) is a voluntary, consensus-based, market-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings that was established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The program addresses the entire lifecycle of a building, assessing if it satisfies all LEED requirements.  LEED certified buildings are designed to lower operating costs and increase asset value, reduce waste sent to landfills, conserve energy and water, be healthier and safer for occupants, and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
