Key Objective

Associated Collections


In 2008, our campus signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, formally committing to become carbon neutral as soon as possible, and no later than 2050. The first Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) was developed in 2010 as a comprehensive roadmap towards a sustainable campus environment. The present 2015 iCAP was developed using the Procedure for Formulating and Evaluating Campus Sustainability Policies & Initiatives, with many 2010 iCAP targets restated or revised and new targets added. Additionally, an updated nomenclature is used in order to provide consistency throughout the document.


The Illinois Climate Action Plan was revised in 2020.  For future progress, please see iCAP 2020: Illinois Climate Action Plan.
