Red Dragons, Green Campus

We lead the way in making our campus green.

We are the first SUNY to:

  • Sign the American College and University Climate Commitment, committing the campus to pursuing the elimination of its greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Go 100% renewable energy for all of our electricity needs
  • Develop large scale solar on a SUNY Campus using the New York Sun Initiative
  • Build a residence hall that is LEED Platinum, the highest green building standard.
  • Achieve a Gold rating in our STARS sustainability assessment from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education
  • Create Green Rep program - student educators with the goal of promoting a more sustainable lifestyle across campus.

Additionally, NYSERDA has also recognized us as a REV Campus Challenge Leader promotion Clean Energy Technology in our curriculum and operations.
