Welcome. We invite you to learn more about sustainability and efforts to develop a greener Wright State University campus. Visit often for the latest sustainability news, events, and information.
At Wright State University’s core is a set of values that drives our priorities and decision-making. Among these core values is the concept of Sustainability that the 2008 Wright State University Strategic Plan defines in part as “the necessity of preserving our planet [which] compels us to weigh the impact of our decisions, both short term and long term.”

A Committed University
In May 2010, President Hopkins signed the Talloires Declaration, committing Wright State to a series of sustainability initiatives, serving as a tangible sign of our continuing dedication to sustainability.

As the end of the Fall 2014 term approaches, let's take a look back and a glance forward.
The Campus Community Garden has been cleared now with the last of the potatoes dug up this week thanks to Joshua Monroe helping me. I then delivered 30 lbs. of red and Yukon gold potatoes to the Good Neighbor Food Pantry in Dayton.
The space that has been the Garden for the last three summers will be converted to a Pollinator Garden next spring and help to educate the campus community about pollinators, their role in nature and in our food supply and why we should protect them from chemical poisons and habitat loss.
Other recent events included the Montgomery County Food Summit on November 5th. Over 200 people from around the Miami Valley attended this conference to learn about Local Organic Food Production and to discuss how the Dayton area can further develop a Food Hub to increase the amount of food products grown and consumed right in our area.

And as we move into Spring Term 2015, we need to get geared up for Recyclemania and the Campus Conservation Nationals coming up in January.
Have a Safe and Happy Break!
