THE DREXEL GREEN INITIATIVE at Drexel University was created in 2008 by students, faculty, and staff dedicated to transforming Drexel's campus into a sustainability leader. The initiative covers all aspects of operations, buildings, academic initiatives, and student life and is responsible for the strategic plan to further sustainable practices and policies.
Drexel University is committed to protecting the needs of future generations, promoting excellence in environmental stewardship and sustainability, and encouraging individual members of the University community to develop approaches to their work and lifestyles that improve the Earth’s health. Therefore, Drexel University’s policies, practices, and curricula whenever possible will reflect approaches that encourage reductions in life cycle costs, safeguard or restore functioning natural systems, and enhance human well-being.
