Sustainable Smith

Since 2008, Johnson C. Smith University has been part of a unique collaboration with three other colleges and universities to look for ways to become more environmentally sustainable. Created and funded by The Duke Endowment, this collaborative includes administrators, faculty and staff members from Davidson College, Duke University, Furman University and JCSU.  

JCSU is part of a unique collaboration created and funded by The Duke Endowment. This year, JCSU is hosting this year's summit to share ideas and hear from experts in the field of sustainability.

In 2012, Johnson C. Smith University conducted an inventory of its sustainability initiatives and programs. This benchmark report will help the university track its progress to becoming more sustainable in the coming years.

Whether it's in the classroom or in the neighborhoods of the Northwest Corridor, JCSU is passionate about taking the necessary steps to teach the importance of sustainable practices and making decisions that take into consideration the long-term effects.
