  11. Interim Report of sustainable operations task force

    The Sustainable Campus Operations Committee (SCOC) was charged with developing the operational plans for a sustainable campus. The approach taken by the committee is aligned with campus strategic planning. The implications of the campus strategic plan and the sustainable campus plan are intimately connected, and they should be discussed in ways where their linkages are visible and understood.  Decision-making for sustainability needs integration with decision-making at all levels of university administration. In this spirit, the format of this interim report provides an overview of the preliminary goals, strategies and metrics for sustainable campus operations.

  12. Illinois Farm Sustainability Calculator

    Associated Project(s): 

    Is your farm sustainable?  How can you make your farm sustainable?  The Illinois Farm Sustainability Calculator can help you figure out these things out.  And it's pretty easy to use.  See the list of tabs on the bottom of your screen?  Navigate through them by using the grey buttons at the top of the sheets or by hitting ctrl+page down (cmd+page down on macs)  In each sheet, fill each white box with data from your farm.  Be sure to make a selection in all of the white drop-down boxes too.  If you don't know something, leave the default number or the default selection in place.  If your farm does not have ten separate fields, leave the extra field sheets unchanged.  Same goes for any extra ruminant, swine, and poultry sheets.

    A total of 2,694 lighting fixtures in the Foreign Language Building were changed from T-12 fixtures to T-8 fixtures as part of the ICECF Lighting Retrofit.
