Overall grade  
The Student Environmental Action Coalition is the strongest force for change with regard to sustainability on campus. The Coalition is divided into four committees to handle specific initiatives: recycling, facilities management, food services, and school purchasing.
Facilities Management works towards the more efficient functioning of campus utilities, either through improved maintenance or replacing inefficient models. However, the University has not incorporated renewable energy as part of that campus effort.
The Student Environmental Action Coalition's Food Services Committee is working to encourage dining services and Aramark to buy local foods, to phase out food and beverage containers for perishable items, and to establish a food-share program with a local charity. Reusable mugs are now available for purchase in campus dining halls as an effort to reduce waste.
The University currently has no green building policy and has initiated limited retrofits.
The University has no known policy of disclosure of endowment holdings or its shareholder voting record.
The University prioritizes investing to maximize profit and has not made any public statements about investigating or investing in renewable energy funds or community development loan funds.
