Sustainability: It's in our nature.
HFS is committed to environmental stewardship in collaboration with our students to reduce our environmental impact through Awareness and Education, Energy and Atmosphere, Sustainable Dining, materials resource like Composting, Conservation and Recycling, Social Justice, building Sustainable Sites through our Housing Master Plan starting in West Campus, and through Water Efficiency. We are committed to continually working together to transform, grow and improve our sustainability efforts.
We have a long time partnership with Students Expressing Environmental Dedication (SEED), a residence hall student group, that helps raise awareness and promote environmentally-sound practices in the residence halls among residents, staff and the Administration. The students’ energy, enthusiasm and commitment have had a huge impact especially by increasing the rate of composting and raising awareness about sustainability issues.
