Climate Action Plan

President Edward Ayers signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in 2007, committing to measuring the University’s carbon footprint, developing a collaborative plan to reach climate neutrality, and integrating sustainability into the learning experience. The Climate Action Plan sets 2050 as the target date for neutrality, with an interim target of a 30 percent reduction by 2020.
