Caring for Creation

Caring for Creation is making sure our practices as a campus are respectful of the environment.  We express this by building LEED buildings, conserving and being efficient in our current buildings, being mindful of plants, pollinators, and natural resources our landscaping and gardening, and generally engaging in practices that ensure that we are caring for our campus, our common home, in a way that is reflective of our Jesuit values, and our Catholic social teachings.
