Comprehensive Environmental Assessment
On Sept. 15, 2007, a group more than 70 Bucknell students, faculty, staff and community members embarked upon a collaborative campus-wide investigation of the University's environmental impact. Organized into 10 assessment teams, participants in this project delved into a myriad of questions relating to the environmental sustainability of the University's policies and practices, including such indicators as administration and policy, education, energy, water, waste, purchasing, dining, built environment, and landscape. After 18 months of research and editing, this comprehensive assessment became available to the campus community and the public in May 2009. View the full document here.
