Monmouth’s commitment to sustainability extends well beyond the curriculum. The University established a Sustainability Advisory Council, and the Environmental Club in partnership with New Jersey Energy Services Corps provides students numerous opportunities to engage on campus and in the community. A number of programs have been implemented on campus to reduce its carbon footprint and generally contribute to a better environment, from Zipcars to and extensive arrays of solar panels to supply energy. On December 23, 2010, Monmouth University received a Certificate of Environmental Stewardship from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. This certificate recognizes us for our “voluntary and proactive measures taken to go beyond compliance in an effort to improve the environment and ensure a sustainable future.” The recognition was specifically for our efforts in six categories: Green Building Implementation; Water Use Reduction; Transportation Energy Use Reduction; Renewable Energy Use; Environmental Enhancement Project; and EPA Voluntary Programs.
