The U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, known as LEED, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world.  Available for virtually all building types, LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings.

Century Park North and Century Park South both received a LEED Gold rating and Scianna Hall was designed for a Gold rating.  Renovations to existing buildings continue to follow sustainable principles in regards to heating, ventilation, air conditioning, power, lighting, and water efficiency.

Reducing energy consumption is always a priority of the Physical Plant. Throughout the year, our energy management team works diligently to implement savings programs such as evening and holiday HVAC setbacks, digital controls, variable speed drives, and energy management software that not only reduce usage but also saves the university significant cost-electricity, water, and gas while reducing our carbon footprint.

Energy: FY19 energy use per gross square foot (GSF) decreased by 1.1% from FY18. FY19 campus energy costs per GSF increased by 13% from the previous year.

Water: FY19 water usage index decreased 20.3% from the previous year resulting in a 19.3% GSF cost reduction from the previous year.
