The objective of Roosevelt University’s Physical Resources Environmental Sustainability Initiative is to support environmental stewardship by educating the community on energy use: carbon reduction, institution-specific consideration for alternate methods of transportation, food chain management, waste reduction, sustainable design, procurement, and packaging of materials. To cite part of its Mission Statement, “Deeply rooted in practical scholarship and principles of social justice expressed as ethical awareness, leadership development, economic progress and civic engagement, Roosevelt University encourages community partnerships and prepares its diverse graduates for responsible citizenship in a global society.”
“Roosevelt University is committed to being at the forefront of sustainability practices by continuously working to integrate measurable sustainability efforts throughout its campuses and by providing advice and leadership to members of the University community” said Dr. Charles R. Middleton, President of Roosevelt University.
