2008 - Educational Institutions - University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond

Last year’s Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Vanguard Award winner for its complete commitment to sustainability programming has stepped it up even higher over the past year.  As one judge put it, “The best just keeps getting better!” Now with a full-time sustainability coordinator to manage campus-wide “green” activities for the university community, as well as draw grant monies and special events to the campus, UCO is the state’s “gold standard” for sustainability. Already a wind-powered campus, a number of new programs are in place and planning now is underway to use solar and geothermal energy options as well. Throw in more than 50 hours of environmental sustainability course work, and the University of Central Oklahoma is a textbook example of environmental excellence!
