Roosevelt University Sustainability Initiative

President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s leadership inspired this nation during another most difficult time in world history. Through his timeless vision, FDR’s words still inspire the RU community to reduce its carbon footprint, energy and water consumption and conserve its resources sustainably.

"Roosevelt University is committed to being at the forefront of sustainability practices by continuously working to integrate measurable sustainability efforts throughout its campuses and by providing advice and leadership to the members of the University community."        - President Middleton

To achieve this end, Roosevelt University Green Campus has completed a substantial array of projects which are already reducing emissions and actively protecting the environment. The University also has plans to continuously improve its energy, emissions, land use and water footprint.
