RU Green Events

Established in 2008, the sustainability initiative, RU Green, originated as a student-led effort through the Student Government Association with the support of the administration, faculty and staff. The vision of RU Green is to incorporate the concepts and practices of sustainability into the academic, administrative and daily life of Reinhardt University so the University's students, faculty and staff act as responsible stewards of the environment. RU Green is a continuing process of integration and will be accomplished through resource management, community education, and increased curricular emphasis.

Why go Green?

People are realizing that there are several environmental problems that continue to grow. These problems stem from human interactions with the earth. These problems include a decline in natural resources, pollution, and much more. These problems can no longer go ignored. For this reason, Reinhardt is doing its part to thank and preserve the earth by going Green.
