Sustainability

A STARS Charter Participant, UW-Oshkosh is the first in Wisconsin to earn a STARS Gold rating, and only the twenty-fifth in all of North America. Moreover, the institution earned distinction as the first university in the United States to declare itself a Fair Trade University. UW—Oshkosh has taken a three-pronged approach to renewable energy. First, it is a major purchaser of wind power electricity from Wisconsin Public Service's NatureWise Program. Second, it has incorporated solar energy technologies on the campus including the 2010 installation of its first photovoltaic panels. Third, in 2011, UW— Oshkosh debuted the first commercial-scale dry anaerobic bio-digester in the Americas to generate renewable energy from biomass. Always conscious of the natural environment, the university’s participations in both the Tree Campus USA program and RecycleMania demonstrate its dedication to campus forestry and recycling. Interested in Green Building? UW—Oshkosh has adopted the goal of LEED Gold for all future construction, with several current building under review for certification. Students will be the green leaders of tomorrow—environmental degrees are offered in the College of Business and department of biology and microbiology, and students take active parts as firsthand leaders in the sustainability movement on the boards and advisory committees of various campus centers including Reeve Memorial Center and the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
