Name of Engagement
UREC supports the JMU community's pursuit of sustainability, environmental stewardship and a broader sense of citizenship. UREC has created several initiatives to promote sustainability, including increased recycling receptacles in the building to encourage recycling of plastic bottles, educational materials placed in the building to promote use of reusable water bottles and a campaign to increase walking, biking, carpooling and public transportation to UREC. University Park was awarded the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification from the Green Building Certification Institute.
