A Word From the President
At Mines, our sustainability efforts are focused in three main areas: teaching, research, and facilities. Students from nearly every discipline have opportunities to take courses that relate environmental issues to society, culture, engineering, and applied sciences.
Mines faculty are engaged in a broad spectrum of sustainability-related research projects, ranging from water purification research to the development of photovoltaic technologies.
Our facilities team is changing the way our campus runs and operates, emphasizing efficiency and cost-savings, in addition to conservation.
