Sustainability

The University’s commitment to sustainability is evident from a prospective student’s very first visit to campus. The university’s LEED-certified Gartner Welcome Center was built using locally sourced building materials. If that doesn’t impress future freshman, then the 142-acre Nature Center on campus certainly will. The center houses an Environmental Science major and offers students and faculty plenty of opportunities for environmental research on and off campus. The university has recently released its Sustainability Plan, which lays the pathway to climate neutrality. The university's newly renovated McPherson Academic and Athletic Complex is home to a 54-kilowatt solar panel array that demonstrates the school’s commitment to energy conservation. The campus is also home to a robust recycling program. The omnipresent recycling bins recycle paper, glass, plastic, metal and cardboard through a single stream program. There’s no doubt that these measures drive Mount Union’s astounding performance year after year in the RecycleMania competition. But the university is not just minimizing its paper based processes—it’s reinventing its infrastructure to convert to paperless whenever possible. The school’s faculty and staff directory is 100 percent online, along with its catalog, personnel handbooks, and most forms. All grades are reported to the registrar electronically, and room reservations, IT equipment orders, and vehicle reservations are all handled online. Mount Union’s on-campus café serves menu items on washable and reusable plates, thereby reducing the amount of waste generated by to-go containers.
