New Wake Forest students in the BUILD pre-orientation program prepare a communal pot luck dinner in the Campus Kitchen space

Of the environment, for the environment.

We’re invited guests on this planet and our Office of Sustainability offers many ways for us to show we know what that means. With a special blend of innovation and common sense, this office works to support and encourage our campus and local communities in a shared mission to love the world we’re with.

How we’ve made a difference:

  • 8 LEED-certified Green buildings constructed on campus since 2010
  • The Choose to Reuse program has saved 3 million bottles from needless discard over its six-year history. That works out to one salvage operation every 63 seconds over the life of the program.
  • Demon Deacons rallied together in May 2014 to divert over 22,500 pounds — over 11 tons — of discarded goods from the landfill as part of Deacs Donate, an end-of-year move-out waste reduction campaign
  • 46 water bottle refill stations across campus, and counting…
  • 900 meals per month provided to Winston-Salem residents through the efforts of the University’s Campus Kitchens program
  • 5 forms of alternative transportation offered on campus.
  • In a three-week span of March and April of 2015, students in residence halls saved 98,432 kilowatt hours of electricity in a national conservation contest. That’s enough to power a single, conventional, 40-watt bulb from now until early 2295.
  • Renovations to Kitchin Residence Hall in 2016 resulted in a 24-percent decline in energy use and a 40-percent reduction in water use from the previous year.
