Bush School Supports TAMU Eco-Friendly Efforts

July 02, 2019

Green space abounds across the Texas A&M campus

Bush School students have worked hard to support Texas A&M’s Eco-Friendly Mission.  The University was recently named the second most eco-friendly campus in the country by College magazine, a college-guide and quarterly magazine written and edited by college students. 
For Texas A&M students and administrators, pitching in for sustainability and an environmentally friendly atmosphere isn’t just a goal, it’s a mission—one that could be seen as daunting, given a sprawling campus and large student body. “Aggies at Texas A&M don’t hesitate to get involved with preserving the environment,” the article says, citing efforts across the campus:  dining services using organic local produce; organizing Campus Sustainability Day, where student organizations offer eco-friendly guidance; ample parking space reserved for scooters; and recycling some sixty tons of material each month.

As one of the University’s nineteen colleges, the Bush School strongly supports the campus-wide environmental effort.
“Being as green as possible is a huge part of our mission at A&M and specifically at the Bush School,” said Dr. Matt Upton, Assistant Dean for Diversity and Student Affairs. “All of our classrooms and offices have automatic lights and recycling bins, and we have water bottle refilling stations at the Bush School too.”

But students and faculty at the Bush School aren’t satisfied with number two.
“We’re continuing efforts to not only educate our students, faculty, and staff. We are always working to engage them in creative ways so that we can continue to become more and more environmentally friendly,” Upton added.
