Mission

As Boise State rapidly advances and grows as a research university of distinction, we must ensure that we do so with mindful focus on creating a campus with an environmentally neutral footprint while advancing research in sustainability. Boise State seeks to become a model of low-impact development for other universities.

Environmental Health, Safety and Sustainability will:

  • Coordinate and lead Boise State’s involvement in the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment
  • Establish a process to guide and oversee policy development related to energy use, energy research, and other initiatives that help create a financially viable and sustainable campus.
  • Work with local and state government to provide an unbiased and informed view on the current research on energy, sustainability and the environment based on information gathered from operational, academic and research units on campus.
