As Rowan University continues to flourish, our impact on the natural resources the community depends upon develops with it. With our growth in mind, Rowan University Facilities, Planning & Operations strives to improve the natural, built, and planned environment, while encouraging sustainable practices campus-wide. Like most institutions of higher learning, our sustainability program has become an integral part of our mission.
Rowan’s sustainable progress relies on the entire university community. Our faculty has the responsibility to teach and influence the next generation’s sustainable habits, while our staff can exemplify these practices within a multi-faceted complex organization. This creates a tremendous opportunity and incubator for sustainable practices that can impact the region, country, and world. At the same time, schools must balance their sustainability goals against project risk, financing considerations and competing capital demands.
