Roosevelt University’s sustainability efforts were recognized this month with a Bronze Award by the Illinois Green Governments Coordinating Council. 

“This designation signals to your community and peer institutions that you stand as a leader in higher education sustainability,” said Eric Heineman, senior sustainability advisor to Governor Pat Quinn.  Roosevelt is one of only 10 universities or colleges in Illinois to receive an award for sustainability achievement. 

During the past two years, Roosevelt has enacted a number of programs designed to incorporate sustainability into campus operations, including academic and research programs, student activities and community outreach.
