"The broad effort of incorporating sustainable practices and concepts into our campus operations and academics has become an imperative in recent years. As an institution of higher education, we have a mandate to model and teach environmental stewardship and social responsibility. Each member of our campus community (faculty, staff, students and administrators) has a role to play in advancing sustainability at WKU". – Dr. Gary Ransdell, WKU Strategic Guide for 2010-2012
Western Kentucky University is proud to earn AASHE STARS Silver rating in 2012.
