A Sustainability Message from
Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., president of St. Bonaventure University. Sustainability Message.
As a campus community, we joyfully embrace the challenge to live in "right relationship" with the environment, with one another and the surrounding communities. Following the spirit of Francis of Assisi, we are committed to:
St. Bonaventure's William E. and Ann L. Swan Business Center was built with adherence to a long list of sustainable building design components, from the use of groundwater for cooling to preservation of trees to reduce cooling loads in warmer months. Learn more about the Swan Business Center's sustainable design components.
St. Bonaventure's William F. Walsh Science Center and the Friedsam Memorial Library's Rare Books addition use underground water for cooling systems, reducing the release of carbon dioxide.
SBU participates in Recyclemania, a yearly contest to see which schools can recycle the most waste. Last year, we made great improvements, recycling nearly a quarter of all refuse.
