University of Wisconsin-River Falls Environmenal Audit

University of Wisconsin-River Falls Campus Environmental Audit

This is an archival web site related to campus sustainability.

The UW-River Falls campus environmental audit will help create a more informed campus that is better able to implement environmentally friendly policies and practices. The intent of this audit is to provide resource consumption data and use it to educate student, faculty and staff about how they can make changes that will lead UW-River Falls down the road toward environmental sustainability and sustainable development. Being a pioneer in the University of Wisconsin system, UW-River Falls is the first university with a functional auditing system.
