Welcome to the Green Office Initiative!

The goal of the Green Office Initiative (GOI) is to help administrative and academic offices at the University of Dayton practice the Catholic, Marianist philosophy of working towards social justice and care for creation. This will be done through a simple self-audit program realized by best practice sustainability engagement and practices.

The self-audit program consists of students, faculty and staff working together to complete a checklist of sustainable practices in their offices. Based on the completion of the checklist, offices receive a Green Office Certification with progressive levels of achievement. All participants are asked to sign a sustainability pledge, which counts towards the certification.

This project started in the Spring of 2017. If you are interested in becoming a Green Office at the University of Dayton or are a student who would like to join the HSI GOI project team, please contact HSI GOI Student Leader, Ana Ritz (
