Roosevelt University Sustainability Initiative

President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s leadership inspired this nation during a difficult time in world history. Still today, through his timeless vision, FDR’s words inspire the RU community to address climate change risks and lead in the area of sustainability.

To drive continuous improvement, a campus-wide Strategic Sustainability Plan featuring energy, emissions, land stewardship and water use reductions will be set in place.
