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, we have added an insect habitat to our rain garden, completely redone our outdoor garden on the eco plot, partnered with the Campus Kitchens Project to reduce food waste on campus, brought a bee hive and live bees to our campus, and are working on updating and improving our bike share program.

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