Green Initiatives

Building Features
Many of our buildings feature environmentally friendly features. Many of our structures contain e-glass that is an energy efficient type of window. We have lights on motion sensors, and we work extensively with IT to keep computer labs as energy efficient as possible.

Earth Day
Every year, Earth Day is a chance for everyone to recognize the importance of conservation and our planet. At Cedar Valley College, we encourage our students to use this day as an opportunity to think about the world around them.
Office Supplies Bank
We are working to create an office supplies sharing system to keep from repeating orders across different departments. This will keep ordering frequency down, and help save on packaging and shipping costs.
Paper Reuse Projects
Cedar Valley College encourages its employees to use both sides of paper, and to keep scrap paper around for day-to-day usage. By doing this, paper usage has become much more efficient.
Recycling Program
Paper recycling exists at this point in all the division offices. This fall we will have a complete recycling program that will include paper, plastic and aluminum. This project will be a joint venture between the Cedar Valley Green Team and Phi Theta Kappa. We encourage everyone to do their part in helping with our recycling program by using mindful recycling etiquette. For example, please remove the cap to your plastic bottles and rinse them out prior to placing them into the bins, also please rinse out your aluminum cans as well. This will help us immensely in our recycling efforts.
Sustainable Curriculum Project
Cedar Valley College encourages sustainable concepts in its entire curriculum, and we are currently developing modules for each of the disciplines that will encourage these learning outcomes.
