The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) has launched a proactive approach to three pressing issues facing students, and they’re ready to share their strategy. When one exceptional LECOM student was lost too soon due to a cancer diagnosis, administrators recognized that there was a set of needs their students have that were not being met.

The green movement focuses on four factors: clean energy, energy efficiency, environmentally friendly production, and the conservation and reduction of waste materials. Information technology offices at institutions can exercise great control in energy efficiency benefitting not only the institution, but the surrounding community as well.

Karli Green, Senior Product Manager, Campus Management:

"Pilot programs at many institutions show that you can save money and the environment at the same time.

Flat is good. By replacing old CRT monitors you get both a cost savings and a reduction in energy as well.

 

Today's campus communities are more connected than ever, but at many colleges and universities the task of immediately notifying everyone about an emergency remains a challenge.

Saving the environment isn’t just a goal at Medaille College in Buffalo, NY. It’s a way of life. Concerned about its impact on the environment, the college is taking aggressive steps to reduce its energy consumption.

"We were concerned about reducing the college's carbon footprint and the amount of energy consumed," says Matt Carver, Medaille’s chief financial officer. For help, the college turned to ARAMARK Higher Education, its facilities management provider, to design and implement a comprehensive energy management program. The program provides the college with extensive environmental benefits, and financial savings with no reduction in services or comfort.
