Statement of Sustainability
A General Statement on Campus Beautification & Preservation
While honoring our mission to keep the Kutztown University campus beautiful, we hereby state that we are committed to both the protection of human health and the environment.
In light of our commitment, we establish the following guidelines and principles:
1. Care of KU grounds and buildings should always be conducted with widely accepted, acceptable, and standardized techniques that limit or decrease:
a. any harm to the individual
b. the need for major repairs, restoration, and/or replacement of campus environmental landscapes, all of which would upset the basic aesthetic of the campus and the community
2. All environmental interventions should follow a continuum, starting from the gentlest and least invasive before proceeding to the next level.
3. While economic factors sometimes necessitate certain courses of action, economics alone should not have primacy over social or environmental concerns
The Campus B & P Committee seeks to empower our community by connecting us to our past heritage and by honoring our future with a sense of stewardship for the long-term health of our campus ecosystems, built environment, and human communities.
The Campus Beautification and Preservation Committee reports to the President’s Administrative Council and is responsible for the following:
Makes recommendations as to how the interior and exterior environments on campus can be improved, with respect for our past and a vision for the future health of our campus communities.
Engages members of the university community in dialogue, research, and actions promoting awareness of place and a sense of stewardship.
