About the initiative
Oglethorpe University’s Sustainability Initiative was established in spring 2008 to improve the environmental sustainability of its campus and its community.
The Initiative strives to coordinate and support all ongoing activities related to sustainability and to initiate and fund new activities related to sustainability.
Ongoing activities include recycling, replacement of outdated lighting systems, and use of organic and local foods in the dining hall.
Recent activities include a revitalized community garden and “green” renovations of existing facilities.
