Sustainability

University of Wisconsin—Stevens Point has taken on a series of ambitious initiatives, including its new Operations and Waste Management Facility—the first of its kind at a Wisconsin university that features a pilot wastewater treatment plant, a composting lab, a microbiology lab, and an adjoined recycling center. The university created the nation’s first Conservation Education major back in 1946, and then founded the College of Natural Resources in 1970. UW—Stevens Point also goes way back when it comes to recycling and composting—to 1989—and each residence hall is equipped with recycling chutes. Also on campus is a compost tea harvesting machine as well as vermi-composting, where worms do the work. These initiatives combined with the work of the on-campus Resource Recovery Center combined to achieve an impressive 44 percent waste-diversion rate. UW—Stevens Point also demonstrates examples of how students, faculty, staff, and the public can live in environmentally-friendly and affordable ways with five of thirteen residence halls using solar panels with plans to add panels to additional halls when renovated. The panels are used to heat domestic water. UW—Stevens Point’s career services helps green-minded students find green-thinking jobs. That comes in handy considering that Stevens Point’s Student Government Association is the only such organization in the UW system to have an Environmental and Sustainability Issues Director and Environmental and Sustainability Issues Committee. UW—Stevens Point’s new residence hall received LEED Gold in November 2012. The residence hall program derives an impressive 35 percent of its electricity from renewable sources.
