Sustainability

Eastern Mennonite University was an environmental steward long before “sustainability” was a trendy buzzword. And, fortunately, the university still continues to be a trailblazer for the green movement. For starters, some lucky undergrads reside in one of the three LEED Gold-certified dormitories. These residence halls were constructed using locally sourced supplies and contain high-efficiency lighting and plumbing and low-VOC materials. Moreover, back in 2010, EMU launched a solar array on the roof of Hartzler Library, the largest commercial scale solar project (first one over 100 kilowatts) at the time. Over the course of their 35-year lifespan, the panels will reduce EMU’s reliance on coal and other fossil fuels and eliminate more than 6,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions. As if all that weren’t enough, the university also proudly boasts five campus gardens, which are tended by students, faculty and staff. The fruits of their labor provide fresh (and tasty!) produce for the dining halls. In 2012, EMU was recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as the third bicycle-friendly university in the state of Virginia. Thankfully, the green movement here also extends to the classroom. Indeed, Eastern Mennonite undergrads can take advantage of an array of environmentally focused courses and majors. Students enroll in classes such as green design and compost research and applications. Undergraduates learn about these areas and then generate real-world solutions and/or practices that can be implemented around campus. EMU hopes that students will then take this understanding of conservation out into their communities and help create a healthier, more sustainable and beautiful world.
