Be Marshall Green

The focus of the Marshall University Sustainability Department is to identify guidelines that promote the most efficient use of the University’s resources, as well as coordinating and educating on sustainability issues, both on campus and beyond.

We emphasize that there are tremendous opportunities for energy efficiency, waste reduction & recycling, a thriving local economy, an active healthy community, and sustainable innovation.

Purposefully Green

The purpose of the Sustainability Department is to:

  • Share the benefits of sustainability with faculty, staff, students, and the community
  • Educate on how actions impact energy and resource consumption, both on and off campus
  • Motivate all ages to modify their behaviors, so that sustainability is part of each persons daily activity
  • Demonstrate the University’s commitment to reducing energy and resource consumption, and developing sustainable initiatives
