St. Edward's Campus

Decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting our climate requires everyone to take action

Projects and Initiatives

In the past few years, St. Edward's has been making progress towards sustainability. In 2003, the Board of Trustees approved the 2003 Campus Landscape Master Plan, which has been providing the St. Edwards's campus with guidance in the last few years for:
  • planting more trees to help clean the air and prevent soil erosion
  • planting more native plants to conserve water
  • creating a more pedestrian campus to reduce vehicle traffic on campus
  • creating a more inviting campus so that students, faculty and staff can enjoy the outdoors as additional alternative for meeting and hangout places

In May 2011, the Board of Trustees approved the 2011 Campus Master Plan that provides the St. Edward's campus with building sustainability guidelines to ensure that building performance is consistent with campus-wide sustainability goals.
