Other Initiatives

The Sustainability Program is continuously looking for ways to raise environmental awareness in the community. Keep checking this page for more information about what Graceland University is doing to make our campus and our community more connected. 

Most recently, the campus rain garden has been upgraded. Student workers John Zeiger and William Ansong built a retaining wall along the perimeter of the rain garden.

(For more information regarding the rain garden, alternative campus transportation, resource management, or the recycling program, please click the associated subheading listed on this page's sidebar.)
