Date:2/29/2012

orgetown University has made an ambitious commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by the year 2020 and has reduced its carbon footprint by over 17% since the year 2005.One of the first universities to adopt the campus-wide use of solar compacting recycling stations, Georgetown diverts over 90% of its waste from a landfill each year. The university is committed to LEED Silver or higher green building standards for all new construction and major renovations. Its new science building, Regents Hall, will feature a 20,000 gallon cistern for on-site rainwater capture and re-use to reduce impacts from stormwater.

Howard University has expanded the civil and environmental engineering department, which is developing an interdisciplinary doctoral program that will be implemented in the fall semester of 2013. Howard's architecture and design department is transforming its curriculum with offerings of green and sustainability design programs for tomorrow's workforce of environmentally knowledgeable architects.

Trinity Washington University has been actively converting all lights at Trinity to energy efficient bulbs. Currently green chemicals and water efficient machines are used in the dorms, Trinity Center, and Main Hall.

University of the District of Columbia and the D.C. Sustainable Energy Utility (DC SEU) have formed a partnership to pilot demonstration projects at the University. The partnership entails lighting retrofits, the installation of new energy-efficient light fixtures and the utilization of a lighting management program to reduce energy consumption at the UDC campus.
