Energy & Sustainability

Energy & Sustainability: Our Mission

We identify and promote sustainable solutions that reduce environmental impacts while supporting an equitable and prosperous University of Dayton, now and into the future.

 

As a signatory to Second Nature's Carbon and Resilience Commitments, we are guided by the University's commitment to carbon neutrality, climate adaptation, and community capacity building to deal with a changing climate.

We approach our work in the Marianist tradition of collaborating for adaptation and change by building bridges with faculty, staff, and students from across campus to creatively address our campus sustainability and energy challenges.

We support the University's vibrant learning community by providing hands-on learning opportunities for students in the areas of waste reduction, energy, conservation, climate mitigation and adaptation, procurement, landscape and environmental quality, food, and more. 

We embrace the University's commitment to applying new knowledge for the common good and responding to the needs of the community and region in caring for our common home.
