Responsible Consumerism

The Center for Sustainability practices responsible consumerism and assists the University in improving its impacts on the local and global community associated with procurement (extraction, production, distribution, consumption, and disposal). 
Example metrics: local/organic/sustainable food procurement rates, sustainable purchasing policies, and waste diversion rates.
