Our Projects

The HSI team works together towards a more sustainable campus and community. Check out what we are up to right now!

Campus Composting
During the summer and fall of 2017, HSI started working with facilities management and dining services to pilot ways in which we can start diverting some of our commercially composted waste to on-campus composting facilities.
Energy GPA

Energy GPA program provides students in University-owned student neighborhood houses with a grade of their monthly energy use.

Energy Team

This campus energy team, made up of faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and facilities management staff, is determined to demonstrate that cost-effective clean energy solutions are not only possible, but also cost-effective.

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.
Kennedy Union Green Roof
Planning and design of the KU Green Roof was inspired and performed by work of environmental biology and sustainability, energy and the environment students and led by the Hanley Sustainability Institute.
Sustainability Education
The Sustainability Activation Program aims to educate University of Dayton campus and beyond about the importance of living sustainably. 
Sustainability Mapping
The HSI Sustainability Mapping Team works to design, implement and maintain a campus sustainability map and also support community partners in the use of mapping and spatial analysis.
