William Paterson University is committed to being an energy-efficient, sustainable, and environmentally friendly institution. Our dedication to sustainability, which extends back more than a decade, was reaffirmed as part of the University’s Strategic Plan 2012-22, which noted the institution’s determination to become a “green” campus by substantially increasing recycling and energy efficiency programs.
The University initiatives include the creation of an academic department, the Department of Environmental Science, offering degrees in environmental sustainability, environmental science, and earth science; the establishment of a campus-wide Green Team to guide sustainability initiatives; the installation of one of the largest solar panel installations on a U.S. college campus; a wide range of energy efficiency activities throughout the campus; and participation in climate leadership advocacy organizations.
