Green Campus

OSU is committed to sustainability. Combined actions by students, staff and faculty are increasing efficiencies and reducing the university’s environmental footprint even as the campus community grows.

The results are in. OSU continues to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase recycling and composting and achieve greater energy efficiency. Students, staff and faculty have made OSU a higher education leader by improving environmental performance. In 2007, President Ray started a planning process to achieve climate neutrality. Even exercise equipment at the Dixon Recreation Center is connected to the grid.
